First of the AB Russians I have got finished… Due up for pre-order for Salute roundabout now I believe!

So first up is a Mortar Team…

So the mortar bombs were red?

Looks like a great range. Nice work Piers as is now de rigueur.

Just spoke to Nic at Eureka…

Cut off date for pre-order sales for pick up at Salute is 19th March.

The range then goes on general sale 1st May.

Pull the other one.
Those must be at least 54mm, you fibber … :-)

Skarper, yes… Red Iron Oxide. Its not as bright red as it looks in the pic. I use Vallejo Hull Red for both German and Soviet mortar bombs.

Dwindling Gravitas… Keep it quiet… They will all realise!

W.W.II Medium Mortar rounds:

U.S. 81mm M43A1 HE
Japanese 81mm Type 100 HE
Russian 82mm HE
German 80mm Wurfgranate 34 HE
British 3" HE

Interesting to note the differences in the tail fin styles.

I wish I could paint 28s half as well as you paint 20s, Piers!
