WWII Soviet Naval Infantry Proof of Concept

Greetings Comrades!

I finally got around to painting up a squad of my 15mm Soviet Naval Troops for Stalingrad.  These are Command Decision 15mm troopers and are on the short side of the scale but the castings are pretty cool and they have, in my opinion, alot of personality, and facial hair!  

They're the first in painting up my "elite" line of troops for this year including German Pioneers, SS Veterans, and Soviet Scouts.  I'll be painting up a ton of elite specialists for 2018.

After painting up a small batch of all-black clad troops, I can completely see why people chose Brunswick infantry for the Napoleonic wars...

I think they turned out pretty respectably for their uniform being all black.  I have about 60 of them to finish and at this rate they wont take long at all.

 They're based for Battlegroup, Crossfire, whatever rules strike my fancy.  I'm hoping to use them for some good "urban nightmare" type scenarios.  Hopefully the Battlegroup team gets their Stalingrad supplement out this year!

That's all.  Lots of AWI infantry on the workbench also, including my Maryland Continentals individually based for skirmish gaming, and a Hessian Battalion that are actually a ton of leftover Prussians that never made it to the painter.  What can I say?  I'm cheap and I'm re-utilizing them in the new world.

More to follow.  The Marylanders are up next.  Huzzah!


  1. Those look awesome man, I agree, lots of character in the faces.


    1. Theyre cool little figures Jack. And i got alot of em to paint yet!

  2. Excellent brushwork on these Soviet marines!

  3. Oddly enough, I'm just finishing a unit of Soviet Naval infantry as well. Your troops look great.

    1. Great minds John! Looking forward to seeing your troops.
