A dead simple paint scheme helped a lot, I'm sure.
So from my two blister packs I've got 4 rifle sections and 5 SMG sections plus 9 Big Men. For battles set in 1944-45 when Soviet Rifle Battalions were severely understrength, that's a company each of rifle armed and SMG armed assault troops. Or for games of Chain of Command a platoon of each plus extra sections for support options.
I've also got an obligatory Commissar and a female Medical orderly.
Thanks to the Mad Padre, I've also got 3x 50mm mortars, a platoon of 82mm mortars, a platoon of Maxim MMGs, and two sections of PTRD anti-tank rifles.
|Loads of support!|
|Maxim MMGs, I had to get creative to add more crew. The fellow waving his binoculars about was a big naff|
|82mm mortars, rather boring poses and fiddly mortars to assemble|
I'm going to need tanks and guns soon!
