Hobby: Sam Phillips Winter Russians

Warlord Writer Sam Phillips has been bitten with the winter bug and shows off his Winter Russians ready for combat:

Sam: My Soviet force is tailored so I can use it in the snowy battlefields of WW2. The two SMG squads along with the free rifle squad are there to charge straight for the enemy, with the two Universal Carriers sporting the HQ section, and giving me an option to place a small squad within for support.

The Aerosan is one of my favourite models, very unique and is a great looking bit of kit! The vehicle can tow a ski squad behind it, giving me an agile little unit to harass the Bosch! I plan on adding a second one in the near future.

Ski troops move up through the 4Ground forest and past a Russian Derevnya (Hamlet)

Backed up by a sniper, anti tank rifle, and some armoured support, it makes for a great little force!

In the works are even more infantry, as the Winter squads are fantastic miniatures, and heavier tanks are a must!
