From SamuliS: 28mm Winter War Finnish Infantry (50 points)


From Samuli:
Another bunch of Winter War Finnish troops. An automatic rifle squad and the platoon HQ team. I took some inspiration from Michael and decided muddy my guys up too. 
Not much to say about the minis or the paint job. There are actually a few sort of good sculpts in this bunch, like the officer in his leather jacket. 

I simplified the paint job a bit to speed up the whole process by removing the deepest shadow color and the final highlight of pure white.

Nice and fast to do. So maybe there is some hope of clearing the painting table of these guys soon. At least until the next Kickstarter batch arrives.

Ah, yes the dirty uniforms really set these guys off nicely, well done. Also, your streamlined process hasn't affected your quality a bit - lovely work here.

This squad of Fins will give Samuli 50 points. Nice job!

  1. Great work Samuli. I love the dirt - snow is always a mess.

  2. Great brushwork - you brought out the best in these -- the first two sculpts do look good too. Dean

  3. Thanks guys!

    Dean: Yeah they are some of the better sculpts of the pack. Not really showcase, but definately good tabletop quality. Though the guy on the left is only showing his better side :D His raised hand is actually pretty malformed on the backside and I guess I spent around 10 minutes just fixing him when cleaning up. It's still bad if you look at it closely, but you won't notice it on the table.

  4. Always nice to see a less mainstream conflict brought to the foreground. Nicely done.

  5. Nice Finns Samuli. Sometimes streamlined painting produces results just as good as doing multiple layers.

  9. I know what you've been through with this figures :-) Great job, I like the mud as it breaks down the white and adds some character. Like the snow on the base as well...

  10. Certainly some of these are more normal looking than the last batch you showed. I think you've done really well with them considering. The officer is particularly good.

  11. Thanks! And yeah there are some pretty decent sculpts too. At least as long as you don't look too closely :)
