PiP (FOW): The God of War → Russian Artillery batteries

"Artillery conquers and infantry occupies" J.F.C. Fuller 

Russian heavy artillery battery rolls off the painting bench this week.  Painting wise nothing is new. The models are getting a bit more detail with attillery poles on the gun carriage and lapels on the (15mm) figure getting a lick of paint. For basing I tried to filling in the base cavities with wood filler instead od the recommend Superglue method. I can not good (loctite) superglue in Dresden so it is rationed while wood filler is easier to get and is design for fill holes any way.
