They are here now. The first platoon of my russian battlegroup. Organised into squads, support units, HQ, ‘spare bits’ and then put neatly into a box, where there is a chance that they will stay untouched for several years. Hopefully not.
I felt an urge to buy a full company, but my economy wont allow me doing that. I will buy a platoon or some gun crews now and then. The chance that I run out of figures to paint is second to none as I have 17 more boxes like this filled with figures…(!?!)
In my search for a 120mm mortar in transport mode, I today stumbled upon a new website selling gaming stuff that I thought was a danish online shop. They had several models that I don’t find in my usual shops and I quickly found some boxes that I couldn’t resist, especially some Zvezda AT and AA guns for my red horde, but also Nebelwerfers for my Fallschiermjägers.
A thing, I also ordered, that I especially look forward to have in my hands is two trucks, one polish Fiat and a Praga truck, both some I will mix together with Opel Blitz’s to give my german army a more “ragtag” kind of look. These two trucks are from the polish company called First to fight. This will be my first models from this brand and I can’t wait to see how the quality is.
After the order was placed I got the usual confirming email and found out that the shop wasn’t danish at all. This was a polish online shop… which for me isn’t a problem, but I found it quite fun that the url was danish and even the language was translated into danish. Well after I found out that it wasn’t a danish site I also found several errors in the translation that a dane wouldn’t do. Check it out yourself. Most of the brands are eastern European, but there is alsvo some Italeri and Dragon boxes. I give you the international url ;-) www.super-hobby.com
