The Red Tide Advances

Some further progress on the Soviet Motor Rifles! Actually quite chuffed with how these guys have come out (after a bit of a shaky start). Looking forward to getting enough of 'em done for a game...

The Platoon Command Pack is now finished. In game terms I only need the лейтена́нт and his radio operator (who will for all intents and purposes just be a rifleman, but the radio on his back adds to the "HQ" look...) for the Command section; the marksman and rifleman with the UGL will find themselves part of the 3rd Motor Rifle section. Also, the radio-operator's backpack still needs an aerial adding.

The first four of the BMP dismounts just need based now. Still to add a further rifleman and gunner with an RPK.

Rather pleased with how well this arm shield came out! Can't see me replicating that any time soon...

Apologies again for some of the blurry pictures. It's not yer eyes, honest!




  1. Very nice work. I hadn't thought of adding shoulder tabs or arm shields to my own fellas.

    Must look into that.

  2. Cheers, Conrad!

    Yeah, I reckon the wee flashes of colour on the uniforms go a long way to breaking up the drabness of a Soviet force, and add a bit of definition to the figures. Go for it, you know you wanna....
