Tank Guy, that all depends where you buy them – for me, and Dave, its Battle Honours (those nice people in Evesham), thanks very much.

It seems that everyone makes late-war Soviets in 25/28mm scale, but early-war Soviets are a bit rare. And our Barbarosa Project will definitely require some early-war Soviets...

Fortunately, it turns out that Battle Honours makes a line of early-war Soviets - and 19th Century Miniatures (manufacturer of the product line) was kind enough to supply figures for this project.

Battle Honours Early-War Russian Command Set

We're starting off with the Command Summer Dress set, which provides officers, standardbearers, and radiomen.

Dave Woodward of Ever Victorious Miniatures has volunteered to paint this set up for TMP. "I have painted full time commercially for 4 years now," he tells us, "having painted part time for a couple of years."

Companies such as Newline Designs, Wargames Illustrated, Renegade, I-Kore, Ainsty and Foundry are among his past customers. "I have a world wide clientele," writes Dave. "My interest is mainly good quality historical figures, although I do enjoy occasional fantasy work."

And if you want to contract Ever Victorious Miniatures to paint something for you? "Pretty much booked up for 2003," says Dave, "although I do put the odd piece on E-bay."
