From KentG: 28mm English Civil War Cavalry Command (70 points)

Kent has recently been suffering with the flu and so his rate of painting has been reduced to that of us mere mortals. Nonetheless, he sends in this excellent group of seven English Civil War cavalry commanders for us to admire.

These are 28mm Old Glory castings. I quite like the fellow imploring with his arm outstretched -  very expressive. 

This group will give Kent 70 points. Lovely stuff!

From TimB: 20mm WWII Soviet Infantry (180 points)

Tim had a very successful DBA Campaign Weekend last week, and he also celebrated a significant birthday - Happy Birthday Tim! (I won't give away how aged you are.) So to change pace from the furious Dark Age tempo he has been keeping, Tim sends in these excellent stands of Soviet WWII infantry.

The majority of these are from Platoon 20, but he has one stand composed of Plastic Soldier Company models. 

The PSC stuff looks significantly larger than the Platoon 20 lads - must be better perogies and borscht where they came from... (or the fact that they are 1:72 scale models)

PSC vs Platoon 20. The boys on the left need to eat more.
These very Patriotic fellows will give Tim a tidy 180 points to add to his tally. Lovely work Tim!

From GregB: 15mm WWII German Panzer Grenadiers (130 points)

Greg has caught the panzergrenadier bug and sends in these splendid truppen and their attendant Hanomags.

These are from the Battlefront range for use with 'Flames of War'.

Reminiscent of Scott's work, Greg has done a fine job with the ambush pattern camouflage on these.

Greg also includes a 251/10 variant (sporting a 37mm AT gun) for his emerging Afrika Korps collection. He's done a great job on the weathering on this. I really like the effect of the original panzer grey and bare metal peaking through the paintwork.

This collection will give Greg 130 points to add to his total. Very nice work!
