Bolt Action: Soviet T-34

Since there will probably be very little time left for this hobby in the next two weeks, I am happy that the last, more extensive handicrafts in 2018 have just been finished before Christmas.
More or less the starting point for one of the bigger wargaming projects next year, a Soviet T-34 with a female crew. The Soviets were one of the few nations involved in WW2 that had women in combat (apart from medical services). In 2019 I will gradually expand the Soviets, also with other women units, such as the famous female snipers of the Russian armed forces.
The tank ist from Warlordgames, scale 1/56. The female crew and the female tank riders are from the Sovjet range from Bad Squiddo. Even though Soviet tanks with camouflage colors were rather rare, I wanted to use a light, not to be dominated scheme here. I mainly used three shades: Russian Green, Dark Green and Cam.Light Green (Model Air Vallejo). The Cyrillic lettering on the side of the tower means "For the homeland!".

SAGA: Peter of Amiens

Peter the Hermit, also called Peter of Amiens. He was part of the first crusade and as a temporarily leader at least not very successful. Some would say that there were two donkeys on the journey. He can be used as the leader of a crusader warband or as a simple priest. Anyway a nice reinforcement for my Teutonic Knights.

SAGA: Two Armies

After I have worked the past weeks on a 4 points Crusader faction for SAGA Crescent&Cross and already earlier this year could finish a Muslim faction with 6 points, here now both armies ready to play. At some point I will also bring the Teutonic Order to 6 points, but for now I need some variety with other projects.
