Bolshevik Tank and Field Gun Finished
I finished the HLBS Schneider CA1 tank today, with some decals and weathering to make it fit in with the other vehicles in the Bolshevik armoured vehicle collection. I'm quite pleased with the overall result, even though it is on the basic side and doesn't have any funky interwar camouflage. I also banged out the Putilov field gun to replace the original one that looked a bit rubbish. It's also a really simple paint job but good enough for me.
I now have a handful of Cheka figures to finish off before I switch back to the Congo forest tribe units, as well as the 1/600 scale stuff for the Iskanderanian project. In the long run, I have my eye on some Bolshevik cavalry as I don't have any in my army which is a bit of an oversight and really should be sorted out. I have the figures, it's just a question of squeezing them in to the schedule at some point once the Back of Beyond campaign is well underway.
