T-26s from the 90th tank battlaion (20th heavy tank brigade)

Hey guys,

Finally got a decent update for you guys. Heres my first T-26 company, ive got another company of 5 in the works. One turret is undergoing field repairs, the gun has broken off 3 times now so im going to add a tarp or camo netting to the mantle just to give the gun some extra support, the gunner doesnt need to see what hes shooting at ;).

Ive tried to keep these models historical, hence the camo. During the Winter War the 20th tank brigade didnt receive orders to whitewash their tanks until mid December (the 13th iirc) and even then not all tanks were white washed. Therefore i decided to just add camo to the company command tanks, it started out as a plain white wash but i found this kinda boring and then i found a colour palate of a T-26 from the 90th tank brigade with a similar camo pattern.

Next update will feature my 122mm howitzers, just finishing up the command teams atm, they should be up in a few days.

Less video games more painting!!

Hey guys,

Sorry about the lack of updates over the past few days. Ive done a bit of painting but not as much as i would have liked. Ive finished off the T-26s, ive decided not to add any decals to them at the moment, later on i might add some slogans and such but i need to buy some decal solvant first. Im also in the process of painting up my arti HQ.

Ill get another update tomorrow, with pictures this time!

The first of many... Hopefully

Hey everyone,

Ive decided i might as well get with the times and start up a blog. This blog will mainly focus on , Flames of war but other WW1/ WW2 games will sneak in as well from time to time as we also play a lot of Disposable heros- Coffin for seven brothers and a couple of WW1 skirmish games. Also expect the odd hockey post once in a blue moon.

Nothing too interesting to post yet, this first post will mainly focus on whats currently sitting on my painting table. This is only stuff i intend to paint in the near future (aka over the next year lol)

Painting table
4x 122mm Howitzers- Fully painted, awaiting basing
5x T-26 1939s- Fully painted, awaiting decals and clear coat
Russian Artillary HQ (Command team, staff team, 2x observers and assorted models)- Need to be primed
Rota Razvedki carrier platoon (3x carriers+crew)- Adding stowage to the carriers before priming
Finnish AAMG staff team- 2 models fully painted, Platoon commander primed.

Thats all for now, expect another post tomorrow.
