Orion Soviet Tank Crewmen

Repeating here some photos from an old post that was wiped out when the site was hacked a few years ago.

Some of the figures are a bit “chunky”, others no too much so, but on the whole it’s a really nice set with plenty of raised detail which makes them easy to paint and they’re a great nice addition to my WW2 Soviet forces.

I especially like the fact that they are not all just standing around fixing tanks or in polite conversation with each other – you do still get some of those poses, none of which I’ve painted yet, but most are either running (presumably from their burning or disabled tanks) or have dismounted and are in the thick of the fighting with pistols and SMGs.



If you click on the following link below to Plastic Soldier Review, you can see their opinions on this set too. The link will open up in a new window.

Battle of Berlin – Stretcher Bearers Conversions

Repeating here some photos from an old post that was wiped out when the site was hacked a few years ago.

The stretcher bearers are old Esci WW2 French in greatcoats with headswaps, the “Frau Medic” is a hard plastic lady from Dapol, the two walking guys are Airfix WW1 French, the surrendering figure is a Revell Engineer with a headswap and the old guys in caps carrying the stretcher are WW1 Airfix Germans

Figure Conversions . WW2 Elderly Berlin Policemen with Shakos


A couple of the scenarios in the Berlin campaign that our wargame group gamed some time ago needed some squads of "elderly policemen", many of whom had to be armed with just handguns.








These are figures from various sets of Germans - Revell, Airfix, Caesar, HaT, and even some of Orion's sets of cops-n-robbers and gave them heads with shakos taken from the HaT Industrie 1/72 scale WWI German Jaegers.
