Su-27's and JAS 39's

Good evening everyone!

Su-27 Flankers on the move.

Well I was home today because of medical appointments and I was able to get some painting done, I painted up one more JAS-39 and two Su-27's.  I have been reading AirWar:C21 rules and I have been wanting to play for a while. I have been working on some aircraft data sheets and other markers to put together some games that are very close to reality here in the Baltic region.  With all the news stories of aggressive Russian air actives makes for some great wargaming scenarios.

Have a great week! Maybe I will have more images to paint up before the end of the weekend.


  1. Lovely planes Mark - especially the SU-27's look really awesome with that camo paint job! These babies must have some crazy maneuver sheets compared to the WW2's!

    1. Thanks for the kind words. The maneuver sheets are very simple as the rules are easy, beer and pretzels rules. It should be fun.

  2. Great work- you get a really nice finish on them.



  3. Nice to see another gamer trying Airwar C21. I want to adapt it to the Ace COmbat 3 futuristic style of planes but the rules seem easy but cumbersome. Nice painting BTW, they look nice.
