Chain of Command - 15mm Soviet Tank Riders
Whilst in the middle of painting my Fallschirmjager platoon for Chain of Command in 28mm, nearly done, I was asked by Binx if I had any spare soviets for a CoC platoon in 15mm. As a typical example of a gamer/hoarder I did. The trouble is that set me to thinking about whether I should have a platoon, there was a whole box of Plastic Soldier Company in my 'to be painted immediately' pile (been there 18 months) so I cracked it open and put together a tank rider platoon and an infantry squad from the support list. Which still leaves plenty for Binx and some left overs.
I went for a very quick solution regards painting; primed with a 30/70 mix of Vallejo German yellow and white primer and then blocked in the trousers, hats etc with reasonable colours I had to hand. A wash and a coat of varnish and they are done. These are not amazing but I have completed them in about 3 hours.
The Fallschirmjager just need the bases doing but now a box of 15mm British infantry is winking at me...
