Bolt Action Painting Challenge, Part Two

As promised, I'm back with my February installment of Bolt Action Russians for the 1,000 point challenge.  It's getting a little dull, as the army is nothing but infantry, a few support weapons, and a tank (which I've yet to buy).

This month was easy, since I basically painted two squads.  I finished off my seconds squad for 90pts, and painted an SMG squad for 143pts. This leaves me 17pts to carry over to March. Here's what they look like today.

So the top is the rest of seconds squad and the SMG squad. The detail shows second squad's LMG team.  You'll also note for the SMG squad I rimmed the base of one model in yellow. I don't have an SMG NCO figure left, so I just colored the base to indicate he's an NCO.

The army is coming along, and next month will look at lot like this month, only I'll have a MMG and AT rifle team to go with my rifle squad.  The mortar and tank will see me through the final stretch in April.

Here's what I've got done so far.  They're sharing storage space with my Dark Ages warband for now.  I've got to find a new home for the Dark Age models soon.

I though I was running ahead of schedule. I am finding painting this models to be rather easy but putting them together a bit of a pain. You force is looking good keep up the good work.

Thanks Mike! I have the advantage of these mostly all being single castings. Next month I have support weapons from PSC which were a bit challenging to assemble, but not too bad.

Looking forward to what you do this month!

They look a determined bunch, well done Jerry.

Thanks, Scott! I wonder if my SMG squad will live to ever do anything worthwhile. They're pretty dangerous up close.
