Greek Evzones, Albanian Front, November 1940 (part 2)

Here is the finished base. It is already on display at the modelling exhibition in Thessaloniki,

A few things could be better, ie. a bid of mud mixed with the snow, but I think it came out OK

I hope that someone will make some 28mm figures some day so we can field them in many tabletop battles.

Greek Evzones, Albanian Front, November 1940 (part 1)

It’s being too long………………………………………..

Health issues (again!!!) and the whole depressing situation about the economy, had kept me away from sharing what I was working for the past few months. Unfortunately nothing Napoleonic which would have helped me with the peace of my mind-yes I know it sound weird , but the multitude of Nappy uniforms calm me down.

Anyway, a very good friend and customer send me those 54mm plastic figures from ICM, an Ukrainian company of model kits,  to paint for a modelling exhibition  in Thessaloniki.

The venue coincides with the celebration of our national holiday at the 28th of October, (called the “ΟΧΙ” day, the day of “NO”) the day  in 1940 when we declined the ultimatum for surrender to the Italian army, thus bringing Greece into the war.

The figures are wonderful posed and animated with only two “slight” mistakes, the lack of the third double catridge pouch situated at the back of the belt,wich I canibalized from a second kit and a rim at the helmet- there was none- and easily sanded off.

So here are the first photos of the figures, still in the final stages of painting with the base and the conclusion in another post
