WeaponsThere are three different weapons in this group of figures; the Mosin-Nagant 91/30 rifle, The PPSh-41 submachine gun, and the DP-28 light machine gun. Weapons are perhaps the most important part of a WWII miniature. Some game rules, like Bolt Action for example, differentiate figures by the weapon they carry. So it is important to glance at a figure and be able to identify the weapon the figure is carrying. Therefore it is important to paint the weapon correctly. Get a picture of the weapon you are painting and get it as close to correct as you can.

Helmets and HeadgearThese russians have three different types of headgear. The pilotkas were painted the same color as the uniforms. The helmets I painted with Vallejo 70823. The winter hats (woolly chapkas?) I painted two colors. The inside of the hat I painted black and the outside I used Ceramcoat Storm Grey. So these will be the grey variety of winter hat. You can also use a brown/buff color as well.
