NBC Soviets - finished

Not a lot extra done on these, except a light green wash on one or two stands


The difference in uniforms doesn't matter too much as they look okay as a group


The masks were probably the most difficult to paint


Awkward things to wear at the best of times and rather unforgiving on the soldier who hasn't shaved for a day or so, rub, rub, chafe, chafe, ouch!


The command platoon


Most modern stuff has a higher rate of fire than your standard WW2 platoon owing to the high proportion of assault rifles; this means for heavier loads to yomp however, you really feel it carrying all that extra ammo


All ready for the capitalist west imperialist aggressors, comrades.
