Well, the first 59 at least! My goal when I painted them was to capture the dirty aspect of being in the snow, could have gone a bit more in depth and may toy with the dirt more at a later date. For now, I like how they turned out.

The painting style I will post up later but was pretty much what was posted on the Baker Company Forums with some liberties taken on color choices based on what I had. The choices of gloves and boots was intended to give the Finns that rag-tag feel of holding the line against the Soviet horde. So, you will see variations of color on gloves, boots and hats as well.....I tried to keep to a 2 or 3 color choice to keep things simple but enough to create variety!

Standing LMG

Laying down LMG, I had to use the bushes to conceal a break on the weapon barrel.

Officer with assistant. I plan to use the officer as an observer and the guy to the left is a unique pose that will act as the officer with a rifle.

White Death detail....very nice work by Warlord.

The Medic with a rifle? Really? The Soviets don't play fair. 
I see him as a two for one, a poor man's sniper and a medic for a low price and extra draw dice.

The Back, going to repaint the cross, must have been tired or something. I went with the black bag instead of the green to give the feel that he may have been a doctor or med student before the war.

Finnish SMGs

Close up...still need to dust some snow off...

This was converted from the NCO that is waving his men forward. 
Simply, I filed down the figure around the arm join.
I used the SMG right arm from the German plastic range by Warlord.
Glued it on, filled it in, added a Panzerfaust! Done!

  1. They all look very effective. If the officer/observer is the only one not to wear a white smock then I don't think he'll last for long!

    1. He is the one behind the tree! That is why he has brown on!

  2. Holy cow that's a lot of toy soldiers! And here I was all proud of myself for finishing a squad of six last week... Nice work!

    1. That is about oh 2.5 weeks of painting off and on. Production line painting and simple pallet choices helps.
