Modern armies – Modern Russian Federals March 2017

To paint modern the Russian army it was not easy for two reasons:
- I had an old Italeri box perfect for Afghanistan wars but, of course, not for modern period
- The Russian army has an official uniform but in the last wars (Chechnya and Crimea) they used different type of mimetic uniforms
So I painted them with a soft camouflage scheme

For some miniatures I decided for a simple yellow-green without mimetic scheme

For others only green shades

The Russian Army was born in 1992 after the fall of the Soviet “Empire” and in the last years was involved (officially or not) in different conflicts: Chechnya, South Ossetia, Crimea

Using the miniatures of an Orion box and some mortars I painted two groups

I bought also a Zvelda box with a soviet machine gun NSV 12,7. It is an heavy machine gun with an effective fire range between 1,5 – 2 kilometers
