|Based to support the "BATTLEGROUP" rules. 5 man rifle section and 3 man LMG section.|
|Command team. Either the Company Commander or a forward HQs.|
|Helmet covers! Just too much wash...|
|Soviet support stands. Mortar, AT gun, and HMG.|
|Soviet platoon leader stand|
Now onto the Bundeswehr troops for SABRE SQUADRON. Finally have these troopers flocked. These are Command Decision US Paratroops and Vietnam range miniatures painted as West Germans.
|West German mortar team|
And onto the Soviets...
|Another Soviet Platoon for SABRE SQUADRON! That's 2 completed Soviet infantry platoons.|
And now onto some aircraft! Here in its early stages is an unfinished Hind-D Gunship that will be used for my modern games. I am going to order 2 more of these babies. This is from the Zvezda "Hot War" collection. I am so impressed with this scale that I ordered a MiG-23, SU-22, and SU-25 1/144 model from Amazon. Air power for my SABRE SQUADRON games!!
|Hind Gunship! Still painting the rotors.|
|Cant wait until this guy is finished! One of my all-time favorite pieces of equipment!|
|Painted in the standard sand/olive green that all my modern Russian stuff is painted in. Ironically, all my Guards forces are plain green.|
Also, here's another little gem. This is the Zvezda Stuka dive bomber from the "Art of Tactic" game that I am repurposing for BATTLEGROUP among other WW2 rules. I will drill out a hole in the underbelly and affix him to my usual aviation bases.
|The tape gave me nice lines|
The colors are off, but I refused to buy 21 dollars worth of spray paint just for 2 models...
So this is based in rustoleum dark olive and light olive.
|Still need to paint on the details and add decals but for the most part he's done.|
(BTW can't say enough good things about these buildings).
|French devils! Smashing the windows looking for fresh bread!|
|2 down, a TON more to go!|
