Another short but hopefully sweet update this week.
Over on the The Guild they recently had a groupbuild, with the omly criteria being that whatever it was you did had to be on a 40mm base. This fit in quite well with a couple of Soviet 9K111 Fagot (NATO Designation: AT-4 Spigot) teams I had wanted to finish.
You can find out more about the Fagot/Spigot here
My teams came from Liberation Miniatures, which includes the firer and loader (one of which I swapped around for a more observer type figure) also include the base of the launcher attached to a kind of rocky outcrop. It looks kind of weird, but makes the missile launcher unit much more stable than it would be without it.
I didn't have any LibMin Fagots handy, but when I got my last S&S Models order I had asked for a number of these missile units to attach to my BMP-1s and BMD-1/2s. I decided to use them, and they fitted in very well with the LibMin figures.
This is the look I was going for:
And this is what I ended up with:
I think they came out OK. I'm not happy with how the Woodlands Scenics turf turned out - I have to work on that...
Anyway... here's a couple of Fagot/Spigot youtube clips:
I found it interestingt he way the tube pops open before the missile launches.
