From SteveM: 15mm Soviet Infantry in U.S. Lend-Lease Armoured Cars (90 points)

Steve sends in this great unit of Soviet reconnaissance infantry mounted in Lend-Lease U.S. armoured cars.

From Steve:

The us300 Armored cars were previously painted but thanks to the lend-lease program my Soviets were able to hitch a ride.  I used the mounted razvedki crew blister (su748) and the company hq blister (su701) to find the right mix of figures that show action and movement as the recon trucks find new prey. The trucks are painted in an amoeba camo which is normally found on the infantry uniforms but it looks pretty cool on the trucks and sets these apart from plain US trucks with red stars.  It should make these pieces fairly unique but at the same time historically plausible. The force composition is taken from a list out of the Red Bear army list book produced by Battlefront for Flames of War.

How: Primed grey, Vallejo acrylics, MIG pigments, and washes, Testors dull cote.

I agree, that is a pretty neat camo scheme.

This group will give Steve 90 points. Very nice work.
