From the Shed: Chipping away at my Winter War project.

I’ve done a few more bits for my Winter War game project which I thought I’d share.

First up a Finnish 20mm zAnti Tank Rifle. A big powerful gun- there was only a single example in use during the Winter War.

Some prone Soviets, armed with a mix of rifles and light machine guns.

A Soviet sniper pair.

Finally a couple of Maxim medium machine gun teams (although technically speaking they wear the later M1940 helmet- I didn’t have any of the early ones spare to do head swaps on them.).

  1. These look really good, Pete! 🙂 The only 20mm Russians with the earlier helmet I’ve seen (Shellhole I think) didn’t look all that different from the 1940 model anyway – the comb and flared sides seem to disappear at more than a few inches distance! Made me realise it wasn’t worth getting new troops for Khalkin Gol in 1939!

      Thanks John. I don’t think it is worth while swapping either- it is not that different. A bead of gel superglue across the crast could work… gives me something to think about.

    Very nice! What scale are those? You probably mentioned it in an earlier entry, but I am too lazy to go look.

  3. Great work on these, Pete!

    Those are great! I can’t imagine the recoil from a shoulder-fired 20 mm gun!

  5. Those are lovely, tow things I love seeing are winter war figures and 20mm ones (I know I’m a bit odd like that!). Smashing stuff sir!

    Cheers Roger.

  6. Love the snowy bases – they look excellent

  7. Once again Pete great work, Happy New Year!

  8. Great work Pete you got the snow working really well on the bases. I really like the pair pulling the machine gun in the last image.
