More Soviet infantry this week. Again these were painted in late 2014, I just never took pictures. These guys are a Soviet Battle Squad. Frontline infantry, but they come with some decent firepower in the form of their 2 machine guns. They are not Red Guards like the last unit I posted, so they are equipped a bit differenty. Most noticeably their armor looks different, but also they wear a simpler and more utilitarian looking uniform. I went with a Soviet styled amoeba camoflage for their coveralls and Russian Green for their helmets and armor. I started chipping the armor with sponges on this squad and went back and did it on the Red Thunder. I still need to do so to my Axis units as well.
I've got 2 continual complaints on the Dust infantry models. One is the soft plastic and the other is a lack of detail in most of the facial sculpts that makes them a bit difficult to paint. I do enjoy the overall look of most of the units though, so I am more than happy to deal with these two, perceived flaws.

Unfortunately, this could be my last post on the blog. It takes a lot of extra time to take so many photos and I've had less time for the hobby in general. It's been a nice ride anyway.
