1/72-scale Russians

With the more stressful portion of Christmas finished, a young boy's thoughts return to re-basing some 1/72-scale Soviets I got from Tim Brown this summer. As one might expect, there are a lot of these guys. I put 120-odd of them on four-man bases like these.

Some are infantry and some are heavier weapons. These form the core of the Memoir 44 units I'm building. The rest of the figures (about 100?) are on washers and basing is underway.

Tim did a really nice job of painting these. He has a very steady hand and a good sense of the right colour. My Soviet's are never quiet khaki enough. 

Up next: A bunch more Soviets (including some naval infantry). And perhaps some games of SmallWorld with the family. Then maybe some terrain.
