So I haven't gotten any gaming in (yet), but I've been painting my butt off! So I've got quite a few posts to make about paint jobs I've recently finished, but a couple of them are actually not for me. This one, for example, is for my good buddy Jimmi in The Land Down Under. I hope you like them!
**EDIT: Jimmi, send me an e-mail, something's wrong, I just sent six (trying different things) and they're all being blocked. Maybe your spouse doesn't want us chatting anymore? ;)
These troops are Eureka Miniatures Russians from the Chechen War-era, which I've painted up as Chinese People's Liberation Army from the 1980s to 1990s (up until they switched over to the QBZ-95), wherein their standard battle rifle was an AK knock-off known as the Type 81.
First up is a rifleman advancing pose, of which there are four sculpts. The lighting is terrible, haven't seen the sun in a week. Let me try getting closer...
That's better, I think. A close up of one of the troops from the last photo.
Next rifleman pose, with a folding stock rifle.
A rifleman engaging the enemy. I really like this pose.
And then the classic, rifle range off-hand pose.
Then we've got the Chinese Type 80 machine gun, a knock-off of the Russian PKM.
One more machine gunner (left), and the boss, an officer.
Here we've got a troop with a Type 81 and grenade launcher.
Another guy with Type 81 and underslung grenade launcher, advancing.
Two poses of guys with their rifles slung and a PF-89 rocket launcher.
Reverse; you can see the folding stock Type 81 at left.
Here we have the Chinese LG3 40mm grenade launcher.
Then we have a Chinese 82mm mortar crew.
And lastly we have the Chinese Type 89 12.7mm heavy machine gun.
Well Jimmi, I hope you like them brother, and I hope this means you're able to play some games straight out of the box (I know you've already got the terrain)! Lots more posts of freshly finished troops coming up; next up are Darryl's US SOF for the Middle East.
