I have some more Russians for you this week. This time some Light Machine Gun teams, a Commissar and Sniper. All are from Artizan Designs.
I'm happy with how these miniatures turned out. The star on the helmet of the commissar is a bit too big, but it was the smallest one I had! I'll have to find a source for some smaller ones. I just wanted the guy to stand out a bit more on the tabletop...
I think the faces turned out well, especially on the LMG teams. I like the fuzzy hats and went with a grey colour for them - I'm thinking of differentiating different units by the colour of their hats.
One weird thing is that the commissar's pistol hand....didn't have any fingers on the back!!! Luckily I have the plastic box from Warlord Games and on the weapon sprue is a hand with pistol! So I chopped off the mutant gun hand and put on the plastic one. I can't really tell that I did that so I think it turned out well.
