Great looking force
Thank you Stanley. Stalin had it right; Quantity really does have a Quality of its own!
OH MY GOSH ALL YOUR STUFF IS SO GREAT AND THERE IS SO MUCH OF IT!!Sometimes I cannot handle it : /
Thanks Art! I often feel a little overwhelmed by it all myself. Sort of a "where the heck did all this come from !?" or "why do I have TWO platoons of these" or in the case of the Russians... "How did I end up with a whole - full strength - infantry company!?"
That is awesome, you are a machine! Looking forward to seeing them in some battle reports in the near future.
Thanks Joe! I've been working on these guys over a few years. Actually production here has really dropped off as I've been spending a lot more time playing boardgames with the kids (and trying to go to sleep earlier! 10pm-2am is when I used to get all my work done!) It would be fun to see these all on that table at once (otherwise what is the purpose of having them all!?) Woe to the Germans that have to defend against such an onslaught!
Amazing looking collection - that is quite a force :)
Thanks Mike! I'll have to get working on some Germans at some point... and maybe some fieldworks for them...
Wow! Now that's an army!
Thanks Scott.I have to say I've really been enjoying following the progress on your WW2 French - I love the camo on their tanks and guns - (it has made it hard for me to resist the urge to order some tanks for my own diminutive force of early war Frenchmen....)
Wonderful collection Tim!...& best of all they are all Painted!I think there is room for 1 more item though....a T35!
Thanks Terry!Did the T-35s ever even see action? I thought they were just for looking impressive on parades a Red Square. I have to admit I've thought of picking one up... just... because... they're so ridiculous! But which one?! There's at least TWO companies that make it!?
Tim, I didn't know the actual combat history of the T35, but like you am fascinated with the What If engagements for pulp gaming this would create. There was some mention of combat, though most were mechanical losses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-35I did pick up one recently along with a KV2 from http://www.agnminiatures.com/so maybe I can just paint up mine & bring it along whenever our next gaming weekend allows.
I am officially jealous. It took me long enough to paint just one platoon (Warlord plastic). I need to do another two so that I have a proper company for Big CoC but I'm also dreading having to triple my numbers. Plus paint the Germans to oppose them.
Oh, don't be. I will point out that I have been working on this force for... six..? maybe seven years...? And it will be pretty rare that I actually get to field all of the infantry... I certainly don't have nearly enough Germans to defend against this horde!! (yet...)(I had to think a moment to figure out what you meant by "CoC" - I've always seen Call of Cthulhu abbreviated that way, but was pretty sure that's not what you meant! Is it Chain of Command?)
Yes, Chain of Command is correct."I certainly don't have nearly enough Germans to defend against this horde!!"That sounds historical though.
Oh, and here's my own efforts: http://littleleadwarriors.blogspot.ca/2014/08/soviet-platoon-for-chain-of-command.html
