Brace yourselves, folks.
The Zvezda 1/100 "Hot War" Miniatures are available for pre-order here in the states, finally. Not that I'm a huge fan of Michtoy - but if you pre-order from them you get a dollar discount! Regular price is 9.99 and their selling for 8 bucks each. A tidy sum but still cheaper than lead.
I purchased enough for a good sized Soviet Battalion at 1:4 or an advanced element at 1:1. 4 packs of T-72, 4 packs of BTR-80, 3 packs of M2/M3 Bradley, 2 packs of M1 tanks, 1 Hind-D gunship, 1 AH-64 Apache gunship.
I need to get cracking and paint up my 15mm T-80 battalion for everyone...That sounds like a good "start-up" project for the man cave. Huzzah!
