WW2 Russian WIP

Heavy Weapons, Zvezda 'Art of Tactic' 82mm mortars and M1910 Maxims from Italeri:

The completed Zvezda 1/144 Sturmovik:
Changed my mind went for the Sturmovik first as a change from figures:


To complete the World War Two assembly.

The usual supported infantry company using the units from Neil Thomas' 'One Hour Wargames'.  As I don't want to do European theatre Germans in 1/72, I've gone for late war against the Japanese if anyone at all.  It also gives me the chance, with some substitutions, to get stuff for Khalkhyn Gol in 1939 for both sides.

A mixed bag:

The infantry first to get most of the figures over and done with.

Bit early with this as I've got some AWI infantry to finish first, so a delayed start.

28mm AWI Americans WIP

Lee's Legion Cavalry. This completes the unit.  Warrior figures with head swaps to get the Tarleton helmets (I forget where I got them):
To continue; Maryland Continental Brigade.
1st and 2nd Maryland Continentals;
All figures are 28mm metal from Warrior.

A while back I put together a representation of the British forces at Guilford Courthouse in 1781 in 28mm.  I fully intended to get the Americans as well but proceeded to do so in 1/72 😕

The time has now come to correct this and get the Americans in 28mm although not sticking strictly to the Guilford oob to get a bit of variety.

Washington's Legion:
Col. Washington's 3rd Dragoons command.
The flag is the perhaps apocryphal 'Eutaw Springs' standard.

Lee's Legion:
