These models have been waiting for paint for a while – time to get them out of the way. I’ve been painting mostly vehicles lately, surprising how much more work goes in to infantry.

The AT guns are Command Decision miniatures. Assembly was a minor pain and certain elements lack detail. For example, the inner surface of each wheel is not sculpted at all; it is a flat lead disc without any of the elements that are on the outside (spoked wheel, treads, etc.). I tried to use deep shadows to hide the worst of it.

The gunners are Skytrex – I bought a bag of 50 assorted poses to supplement the goofy PSC gunners from the plastic kits. Unfortunately, these are not great sculptures – the detail is confusing at best. Everything is raised and exaggerated, so at least I was able to pick out what usable detail there is.

These probably won’t make it into my Rota list – I put them together for my Late-War Udarny list. That said, I think they are very useful as they are the most effective Soviet AT gun that is rated “Light”. For ambush purposes they will have the most flexible placement at AT rating 8 and ROF 3. That is a real threat to the side armor of everything except Tigers.
