Early Christmas Package
Labor Day was last week signaling the end of Summer. Today, I received a package full of Winter!
Yeah, I received miniatures from a Kickstarter I backed from Bad Squiddo Games – WWII Soviet Women in Winter Uniform!
They are so beautiful, no flash or mold lines and the poses are so dynamic, they look as though they stepped out of 1940s news photographs and newsreels.
I smiled and I cried. I cried a little when I realized that these miniatures are based on young women from my mother’s generation, who were the age of my granddaughters and so many of them made the ultimate sacrifice. There’s a lot we can learn from their sacrifice and there’s a lot we can learn from them about living day by day.
So, you may ask “will the Floozy have all of these painted before Winter?” Of course I will.
BUT – the real question is “will the Eastern Front supplement for NUTS! be released before my girls take Berlin? At the moment it’s February 1942 & they’re at Rzhev.”
Here’s what I got:
Since I now have an Anti Tank Rifle Team, I guess my next purchase will have be a Panzer III for the team to blow up.
I hope this wasn’t boring, but it was good to have a little excitement today. Until next time “dasvidaniya”!

Boring? Not at all! These are great figures and I love the thank you note. That’s what gaming is all about!
Great figures- they look really nice and capture the look of the Red Army’s women.
Great to see these minis. Those women have pretty much been forgotten.
