Managed to finish off the last of my Finnish forces a week or so ago. Now that they're done the next step is to flock these and the Russians to match each other and then buy some tanks and trucks etc for the Russians to round off the forces.

Returning to some stuff that I actually did last month and never got round to posting up seeing as I'm perpetually bad at trying to stick to a schedule on this kind of thing. The next batch of cultists, alongside the scifi ones these are the ones outfitted with more modern weapons, (a variety of stuff from the remains of a ww2 plastic weapons sprue and my bits box) Likely to be used for the likes of a Cthulhu type game or IHMN etc and in keeping with the scifi ones and the fantasy still to come.
Now that the Mordheim campaign season is finished next up is likely to be something Scifi before we return to Mordheim. So I dug out some scifi bands that might be of use for the likes of Scrappers, Rogue Stars etc.

So finished off the main part of my Russian Army for BKC, I've been alternating between Russian and Finnish forces on the painting table and these were the first to be finished. Still need to get some support options, Armour, antitank, etc. But this is well more than enough to get started with as I'm planning to try them with Chain of Command at some point, see how we get on pretending that they're 15mm with some winter war action against the Finns.

The other one I've managed to complete recently was some cultists for Rogue Stars (Primarily) They're the cultists from Northstar with the resin scifi bits pack. I've deliberately left them dirty after their ink wash as I think that fits a bit better. The rest of the box was assembled with a mix of modern (ish) rifles and smg's to be used within IHMN or a more modern Cthulhu type game, with the remainder done using standard fantasy type weapons, however I'm sure cultists even in the modern age wouldn't be above using a big axe or sword so I'll be keeping with the same colour scheme throughout all of them.
All the talk of playing Dirtside II again had me digging these out and finishing them off and adding a few Infantry stands to see how they compared for size.

I got these chaps down at Vapnartak as my main purchase for the day. So they're all assembled and these are the first 2 groups painted up. Basing and shields will wait until I'm finished the rest and will get done in one go. I'm still swithering about whether to get shield transfers or not. I quite like how they make the shields look with the nice big dirty bit on the bottom and the marks and scratches over them. But it still feels a bit like cheating, I'm just not sure I could actually manage to do anywhere near as good a job myself.
