After all my travails with my Napoleonics, it's time to get cracking with Jimbo's Soviets. After last year's infantry, I'll be painting and basing up his command, heavy weapons, artillery and observer units.
First up is a light mortar and crew by Plastic Soldier. They're not in the snow; the artist's gel will be painted and embellished with foliage and ballast for a more aestival (look it up!) feel.
