'Reconnaissance' from TamsinP: Russian Scouts

What better for the "Reconnaissance" theme round than some more WW2 Soviet women from Annie at Bad Squiddo Games. This time a small squad of scout troops. Painting the amoeba camo was quite therapeutic after all the faffing about with highlighting.

Looking at these pics, I see that some of them decided that the amoeba camo wasn't enough and have added some grass to their overalls.

That's six foot figures for 30 points, plus the 50 point theme bonus = 80 points.


  1. Nice camo pattern, lovely scouts!
    Best Iain

  2. Very nice, the map is a great touch!

  3. Lovely work Tamsin. The camo turned out very nicely.

  4. Great stuff Tamsin. I like the sniper/spotter combo, they look like they mean business.

  5. An unusual subject, really nicely done. I especially like the sniper team with map.

  6. What a splendidly realised unit and nice to see some different sculpts

  7. Excellent painting and basing work. I love the sniper team especially

  8. How very Heinz Konsalik (The Female Battalion) great work on the camo Tamsin!

  9. Grass on overalls makes for better camo surly?

  10. Very nice smocks; I like the map-reader pose.

  11. Really nice work and I love that sniper team. Great work once again Tamsin!
