From TimB: 28mm Cold War Soviets (25 points)

From Tim:
Just a quick one... I decided to take a quick break from the brightly coloured and annoyingly detailed samurai to knock off a few easy minis that arrived in the mail this week.

These are Atomic Cafe 1957 Soviets (I think Brigade Games makes them...? I picked them up from the North Star january sale - along with a few other Atomic Cafe 1957 packs they were blowing out). 

They look like they may have been sculpted by the same sculptor that did the Mongrel Cold War Soviets - of which I have a few - so these will fit in nicely with that.
Back to the Samurai in a bit, but I'll probably be taking a break for a week to get some terrain built.
Ah, this is a nice little diversion from your feudal Japanese project. Great work Tim!  I really like these early Cold War period models with their jodhpurs and high boots - very evocative of the time.

These five '57 Soviets will give Tim 25 points. 


  1. Good stuff Tim - must have made a nice break from all those Buntai :)

  2. Wonderful paintwork on these russians.

  3. You know you've been working hard when brown is pleasant change! Very nice for all that mate.

  4. These are really cool Tim - I had never heard of these castings before. You make them look great.

    1. I has some really oddball stuff. I also picked up some US civil defence troops in NBCD gear (armed with M1 Garand rifles!) some bloater zombies and the Michigan State Bowling Champions!?


Thanks for your comment! As long as you're not a spam droid I'll have it up on the blog soon. :)
