Eight of the Black Tree Design figures I have are wearing the fur hat known at a ushanka. While these hats can come in various shades of browns, greens, greys, and black, I made them all the same color to give them some unity. The NCO is wearing a grey hat to distinguish him from the others. To separate some of the same poses, I painted the top of two figures Reaper Uniform Brown, which had a bad habit of cracking while drying. I also gave the fellow on the far left rear a nice scar on his cheek. The NCO also got a small scar. I'll finish up the pics as soon as possible this week. I wanted to post them last week but got sidetracked with real life, barely having any time on the computer.


  1. CP: Viewing your troops in my photo program I must say that your painting style and its effect is very 'crisp' and detailed. Great job, Sir.

  2. Top notch work Sir, seriously impressive.

  3. Thanks, guys. I can't wait to get them on the table, which should be next month.
