June Giveaway

(image from onthewaymodels)

This month, I am giving away a 20mm WW2 Soviet bundle.

A while back I bought the Italeri JSU-152 box set that came with two kits in it: one for a "standard" model, and one for a quick-build "wargamer's" model. After examining both kits, I decided to build the standard kit and give away the quick-build kit.

You get a complete kit in single sprue, depicted above, plus some decals that came in the box. To save on postage I am sending the sprue in a padded envelop, with the box collapsed.

I have also included a couple of sprues from Zvezda, being:

a single Soviet 45mm anti-tank gun depicted above, including the mini-diorama base but MINUS the crew figures. The sprue comes with parts to build the gun in tow position, so you can either use it for a towed gun model, wreck it for a wrecked gun terrain piece, or supply your own crew.

the two rifle-armed infantrymen on the left side of the picture above - two of the first and one of the second, a total of 3 figures.

Not nearly enough to recreate a Russian horde, but hopefully just what you need to round out that platoon. 

Let me know if you want the above by leaving a comment, and I will draw a winner on the 15th of the month. This is not a first-come, first-serve offer,

This offer is free; once I let you know you have been drawn, do let me have your email and mailing address, and I will mail it to you. You don't even have to pay for postage. I am doing this not to get some money back, but to give these toys a good home. If you want to pay back somehow, I ask that you make a small donation to a local charity, or consider doing the same thing I am doing and give some gaming stuff that you no longer need/use a new lease of gaming life.

Thank you.

Free stuff? Yes please...

While my russian horde is far from a horde, any reinforcements are welcome. I have some Zvezda machine guns so these should fit right in.

Have watched your blog for a while now, think it's really cool that you give away stuff to keep the hobby growing. I enjoy your Chain of Command battle reports even though I am a BA player. Cheers! Brian

Been a long time since I've checked in, but I have some 1/72 Russians in the figure pile. They could use some armored support,I'm in.
