I have made a start on my forces for NUTS!. The discovery of some left over figures from my Guards Air Landing force for FoW settled the question of which theatre to play.
The left over figures did not include any of the Degtyarev DP LMGs, so I have ordered some from the local Peter Pig distributer along with an OPFOR of late war Germans.
I also have a vague inclination to get some Japanese as well, to be opponents in the Manchurian campaign - something a little different.
Here is an early picture of the two groups (aka sections, squads) of a Russian platoon. These figures are from the FoW range.
Despite my best efforts, these tovarishes look a little dark - they look better in person. Still a bit more highlighting and weathering to do, but they are beginning to take shape.
The basic set of colours in use here are:
GW Chaos Black
GW Bestial Brown
Vallejo Russian Green
GW Graveyard Earth/GW Bleached Bone 50:50
GW Catachan Green over GW Graveyard Earth
