Russian Survivor Squad, pt 1

By Michael Cannon / August 24, 2007

I have started one of the Russian Survivor Squads I won at the Lonewolf. I thought I’d take some time with them and enjoy making them look like collector’s models – or as much as I can. The historical miniatures are different than the fantasy ones I have been painting. Some of the details are not quite as crisp (note some of the hands on the figures). One of the figures is an ebony/black one. Don’t know why, don’t know how they would have gotten to the Eastern Front, but here he is nevertheless. Perhaps a US serviceman taken prisoner and freed by the Soviets. I’ll post in-progress shots as I get along.

About the author

Michael Cannon

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
