I got the 2nd half of my WinterWar Finnish Platoon painted.
They have a pretty undergunned platoon compared to a lot of comparable WW2 countries organisations: only 2 LMGs and 2 SMGs with the balance being rifles. Still what the Finns lacked in firepower and equipment they made up for with tactical nounce.
The miniatures are all from 1/72 Scale Miniatures and are lovely characterful sculpts.
I also got a copy of the Skirmish Campaigns book on the Winter War.
I’ve gone through the book and worked out what else I need to get hold of to finish the project off… not that much really. I’ll look forward to playing the games using the old Arc of Fire system. Some bits are a bit clunky and their isn’t enough focus on the role of NCOs but it is still one of the better WW2 rulesets out there imo.
Next job for this project is to paint what Russains I do have as opposition and then to start playing some games.
