Elvis meet the russian NKVD

This week I started working with my
figures that I got as a gift last-last weekend.
Firstly I made a russian/NKVD-HQ with
a jolly radio-operator. The bricks are made
of high density polystyrene.The ammo-
boxes have a center of polystyrene and
the woodwork come from the sticks that
you use to mix your coffee when you
buy it in your local café.
The corrugated "steel" is made from cardboard.
The flag-pole come from a binder cut into
pieces. The accessories is a mixture from
40k, Warlord games, Black tree design.

Finally I have based my two high rank-
officers. The highlight is the king himself,
Elvis with a big six-shooter. I managed to
complete the figure with an arm taken from
ww2-russians soldier-bits.
The figures will mainly be used in SoTR but
also in Zombie apocalypse. Looking forward
get these figures some "lick of the paint". :)

Under veckan som gått har jag börjat mitt
arbete med fyndet som jag fick för-förra

helgen. Jag började med att bygga ett
ryskt NKVD-högkvarter med en skojfrisk
radio-operatör.Tegelstenarna är tillverkade i
hög densitets friggolit och trädetaljerna kommer
från stickorna du får när du ska blanda ditt
köpkaffe när du tar en latte med polarna.
Den korrugerade plåten kommer från kartong och
stången till flaggan från ett gem jag klippt ner.

Utrustningen är en blandning av 40k, Warlord games,
Black tree design.Slutligen har jag byggt baser

till mina två höga officerare. Höjdpunkten i denna
presentation är kungen själv dvs. Elvis med en
ståtlig sex-skjutare. Jag kompletterade figuren med
en saknad arm som jag hämtade från mina bits
tillhörande ryskt infanteri 2VK.
Figurerna kommer huvudsakligen att användas i
SoTR men även Zombie apocalypse.Ser fram emot
att se dessa färdigmålade.

  8. No need to say you're making a very good job, but I'm always fascinated by the way you re-use scrap materials!
