Here you go.
"Ivan Karamazov's Iron Grenadiers", in all their splendor.
Still got quite a bit of painting to do. Including the flesh on most guardsmen
in the pics as well.
My cellphone cam lacks focus, so only far away pics look good. It's a bit blurry.

THe bases need to be done but overall they are quite nice. The dozer blade is great.

wow, theyre pretty good pics for a cell camera! The detail on the models looks consistent, and I know I could never paint that many Guardsmen to that quality. Great Work

The "Melta This" graffiti on the dozer blade fills several functions.
It's a little bit tactical as well.
It looks cool/funny, and as any guard player knows, tanks get hit early and often.
So with this little thing, I challenge the opponent to "melta it". Somehow, in several opponents psyche, a line of tought lock in saying "I'm gonna melta that little bastard!"
Which makes him actually try to move up close with melta teams.
They have never succeeded. ;D
If I had written "lascannon this", it would not be fun at all since it is always lascannons which taked tanks out. And it is too many letters as well :P
