28mm Cold War Soviets.

Bill at Under Fire Miniatures [clicky] was generous enough to give me some his new 28mm castings to paint up. Expanding upon his initial Cold War releases for the Germans both East and West he has brought out some Russians in the classic 1970s/ 80s khaki uniform.


The job lot painted up. Plenty to run some small skirmishes with the previously seen West Germans.



At Bill’s request I photographed the figures in the packs that you buy them in. Here with have the PKM pack.



The platoon HQ pack with and SVD armed Marksman.


The RPK pack.


Finally a pack with 1 RPG7 and three riflemen with AK74s.


Painting was done with Vallejo acrylics. The main uniform was Green Brown, Webbing was Khaki and Leather Belt with the NBC pouch in Canvas, the helmet was Russian Green lightened with a little bit of Yellow Olive.


Many thanks to Bill for the figures.

    Gotta be honest, in recent months I’ve found myself becoming more and more intrigued by Cold War miniatures. Your posts are one reason for that. 🙂

      Thanks- glad I was inspiring. The Cold War is a fascinating period- I only really remember the very end of it. Not just the counter factual possibilities of the Warsaw Pact versus NATO but the side proxy wars too. It has something for every sort of gaming.



  5. Excellent figures Pete. Have you posted any of your Rhodesian stuff. 28mm SAS coming out soon from Underfire.

  6. Nice looking USSR miniatures you did there Great paint work my friend. That fellow that made em did a fine job as well!

      The scuplts are so well done it is a pleasure to paint them. Not too much detail on them like some fantasy figures have but everything that was there was really crisp.

      Next up will be some 28mm Cold War US troops that I’m really looking forward to seeing.
