Russians for the Tcherkassy-Schevchenkovskii Operation

In between other projects I've managed to finish a Soviet rifle platoon for the Korsun Pocket game at Gauntlet.

The platoon is led by a Leytenant and consists of three sections each led by a serzhant. Each section has a two-man LMG team with the DP disc-magazine-fed weapon and seven riflemen.  At this stage of the war, some of the latter have PPSh SMGs.

First Section


Second Section

Third Section

In each case the leaders are on larger bases (2p pieces) to help distinguish them in the heat of battle.  The kneeling-pointing-guy acts as the LMG loader in each case.

Finally, I've done a sniper element as a possible reinforcement:

The figures are all Italeri and Revell plastics.  Clearly I've gone for speed rather than painting quality.

Thanks, Andy. Having seen the work Will has been doing on terrain I'm inclined to agree.
