More than just people fled the advancing Soviet hordes at the end of World War Two. People abandoned their farms and homes and fled west to try and escape the Red Army.
The cows were brown plastic that I primed in Testors Flat Gray Primer. Then I used Testors Flat White paint to paint the blotches on the cows. I had to use three coats of paint for best coverage. Then I used Tamiya Flat Black as the flat black. The green is Testors Flat Beret Green. Cows were then sprayed with Testors Dullcote.
Pigs were like the cows, originally brown plastic, primed gray. I then painted them Tamiya Flat Red Brown with a very heavy dry brush. Same base green.
