Russian SMG Squad and Maxim

Sorry for my lack of an update - I was out of town for a while.  For this update, I have most of a Russian submachine-gun squad and a Maxim gun team.  The miniatures are a mix of Artizan, Crusader, and Warlord Games.

These miniatures were great to paint and I did them in batches of seven or so at a time.  I went with the brown fuzzy hats this time, instead of the grey.  I'm doing that so I can tell the different units apart.  I just wish the red stars on the hats were a bit more defined instead of being a blob.

The Maxim team took me a little while to do, and the way the gunner and loader were sculpted they lean forward too much.  I had to put down some plasticard on the base in order to prop them up to the right height.  The gun only has two miniatures, so I used one of the plastics from the Warlord set to round out the team to three members.

I really like the look of the Maxim gun, and will look great on the tabletop...especially when I'm gunning down my opponent's Germans...  ;-)


  1. More fodder for the MG34! Da!

  3. Very nicely done, love the base harmonising with the uniforms, very clever.

  4. Nice paintjob, I'm now following.


  5. Oooh! Ubique Matt (apart from being everywhere) is a great painter - score for a follower Wally!
