Super Fast Soviets

Super Fast Soviets

Postby Piers » 13 Apr 2010

For really fast WW2 Russkies try this... Took me two hours to do 27 figures...

Thats about four and a half minutes per figure!
:grin:


1 - Spray with Flames of War German Yellow Spray

Image


2 - Paint in the bedrolls (I used VJ Chocolate Brown and GW Adeptus Grey), trousers with VJ Russian Uniform and helmets in VJ Russian Green.

Image


3 - Paint in the beltwork with VJ Saddle Brown

Image


4 - Paint the boots black!

Image


5 - Paint the guns, do the flesh and add any details.

Image


6 - Hit 'em with Army Painter!

Image



Now I just gotta wait for them to dry overnight and then tomorrow I can Matt Varnish them and base them... Pretty pleased with that!

Once based and varnished I will add some more pics to show the 'finished' look.

This is great!!!!! You make it seem painting is "a piece of cake" :grin: :grin: :grin:

Questions if I might:

What tone did you use?
What varnish did you use? (looks really good)
What kind of bases did you use? (they don't look like the ordinary cent or penny coins)

What colour did you use for the guns. It looks black in your second last picture but then in your finished picture it's metal ! :scratch:

Very useful and handy tutorial Piers! I've started my RKKA project using Yours tutorial and "Plastic Soldiers Company - Summer Soviets" box.

The finished NCO goes like this (just have to paint the base with brown):
