Russian Farms and Jumping Off Tokens
Continuing with my Chain of Command preparations, I got a load of 3D printed barrels off EBay to use as Jumping off points. They are not particularly detailed, but lumped together on a small base they look OK to me:
Being cheap there is not a great deal of detail, but as Russian rural buildings can be quite plain this is not a problem. I gave these a spot of colour with the green doors and shutters and added a bit of foliage climbing up the walls.
In the set were other rural buildings including these two barns, which are very nice models.
Again, these were plain buildings and I'm sure I could have added a few more details, but I was happy just to paint them as they came out.
And finally there was this pig sty, which is a lovely touch and really adds to the rest of the buildings.
Painting was an easy task, just various browns and greys, along with some weathering a bit of drybrushing. A great addition to the table!
On the Storm of Steel Youtube channel I have a new military history video on the Japanese landings at Kota Bharu. I was experimenting with drawing my own maps and is something I will be exploring more for future videos. Let me know what you think (and please subscribe!):
