I will post pictures of them when they arrive. Suffice to say I'm thrilled. These will be some sorely needed assets boost to my modest force of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. Here's what's on the TOE list for my Soviet forces now in 15mm - all this stuff is at home awaiting paintjobs:
5 x T-80 MBT (Quality Castings)
3 x BMP-2 IFV (Quality Castings)
2 x BRDM-2 Recce (Quality Castings)
50 x individual infantrymen from Command Decision minis
6 x T-55 (Quality Castings)
1 x T-62A (Quality Castings)
I will be receiving a Battalion's worth (at 1:4) of T-72 tanks and BTR-70 APCs in the mail, along with 2 x Hind-D Gunships for combat air support. Also ordered US Armor and IFVs as well - more on those later.
Going to outfit the T-80 battalion in the tan on green camo scheme and the T-72s will be just the opposite with a tan base and green and black "squiggles" painted on. the BTRs will be in the same scheme as the T-72s. while the T-80s will be in the same scheme as the BMPs.
The plan is to sell off my 6mm micro armor, 10mm Napoleonics, and all my unpainted adler lead ACW figs to continue to finance my 15mm binges. This zvezda purchase was a long time coming and I had set aside money all summer to purchase it. Now it's a reality! Pics to follow when the package arrives! huzzah!
