Kingdom Death Monster - Olympus Year 9

Kingdom Death
After their last few hunts, the survivors of Olympus are feeling pretty confident in their abilities, but not confident enough to face the totally unknown creature whose feather fell on their settlement. Zeus gathers some experienced hunters and decides to try to hunt an older, more experienced (level 2) screaming antelope, in the hope its larger body will provide greater resources.

Zeus carries his king spear and wears the newly crafted screaming coat and the helm fashioned from the skull of brave Ares (who was executed by armored strangers). Aphrodite wears a full set of rawhide armor and is armed with a the scrap sword. Athena II also wears full rawhide armor and carries both the butcher cleaver and bone axe. Rounding out the hunting party is the relatively inexperienced Artemis, who wears the cat eye circlet and is armed only with a founding stone. The intention is for her to mostly observe the battle and help the others spot weak points and openings in the monster's defense.

Baker Company Winter War Soviets First Wave

My first batch of Baker Company Winter War Soviets (from their long-ago Kickstarter campaign) are finally finished. Below you can see pictures of the finished first wave (consisting of 6 squads of 10 infantry each and an officer with three infantrymen accompanying) plus two commissars and a standard bearer from the second wave of stretch goal extras. If you're interested in how I painted them, you can find all the details in my previous post: Painting Winter War Soviets. I came up with a pretty quick method that allowed me to paint this many infantry relatively (for me) quickly. Since what is pictured only amounts to about 600 some odd points for Bolt Action, I still have quite a lot more painting to do, including all the other Kickstarter extras. Let me know what you think so far.
