I have never claimed to be a fast painter, I have finally finished the first company of infantry for my soviet battalion. This is a complete company of 3 platoons one which is all sub machine gun teams, with its own Komissar and a maxim hmg team. I intend to do one more complete company and then a number of different support options I have available. I was going to do a Tankovy Battalion but I decided to just buckle down and paint the Infantry and do a Strelkovy Battalion as the massed infantry is what made me want to do soviets in the first place. The local Escalation league kicks off next weekend and I still haven't made a final choice for my list, though it is either going to be soviet infantry or back to Germans. I am the master of last minute decisions. If I go with Germans the Soviets may become my first mid war list, A horde of Fearless Conscripts will give the opposition a reason to run and hide.
