Russian Survivor Squad, pt 3

By Michael Cannon / August 30, 2007

surv4a.JPG I have finished the second member of my survivor squad. I think this pose is the best of the lot and I am glad the Secrets of the Third Reich (SoTR ) range comes with the Separate Head System (SHS). It’s a clever concept but can allow for some minor variations of figures with great results. I again attempted to paint the cloak using camoflage patterns. I *did* highlight this one more than the last but it’s still not very evident. When I started to do the pattern highlights, they seemed to change the way the pattern appeared.

surv4b.JPG The base was made from green stuff and parakeet gravel. The flock is from GF9’s new range. The skull comes from a Reaper Master Series Paint bottle that I had finished up. I used metallics on the metal rather than using a NMM technique but I got the transitions smoother than in the previous miniature so I am pleased with that. This is a guy that has seen some action….

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.
