Actually, it was a pleasure to watch this excellent SBS unfold. Most people aren't that familiar with Russian WW2 cam, and it was certainly an eye opener for me. We can look forward to more of the same from Vladimir.

Has anyone else here ever painted this pattern, or any other Russian pattern, for that matter? I can't recall seeing any cammed-up Soviet figs here. Most WW2 Russians are in plain colours.

David,

I must agree with you... have not seen many WW2 Soviet figures in camo. Although... Gino Poppe has done amoeba (sp?)
