Cold War Swedish and Russian



To be able to run some games during the Whiskey on the rocks incident in 1981 i needed some Swedish and Russian troops to fight it out. For the Russians it was the elite of the elite that I wanted to depict, the Spetsnaz and for the Swedes the best we could send in, Kustjägarna (Marines).

My knowledge regarding Russian cold war troops are limited so I went for some generic minis with Russian weapon from the Gripping Beast MoFo range, as well did I decide to use some of their British minis from the same range for the Swedes, not an exact match but close enought for me.

Here you have some pictures of the painted minis.
