Modern armies – IDF Feb 2017

The second army that I painted for my children was the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).
It was not very hard to paint them because their uniforms are easy: no mimetic, only a green-olive.

The IDF was created on May, 26 1948 and he participated in many military operations. The number of wars and border conflicts in which the IDF has been involved in its short history makes it one of the most battle-trained armed forces in the world.
Below some photos of real IDF actions and photo of my miniatures. The IDF troopers use different kind of rifles: M4, TAR21 and X95

The box of miniatures that I bought included also a TAR21 modified for urban scenario

Another photo of an urban scenario with a Merkava tank in the landscape

Some miniatures wear the Mitznefet. A strange camouflage that is considered effective in breaking up the outline of the head.

I converted a French soldier that carries a mini-gun using the backpack of another IDF soldier that I haven’t painted because in the box no one uses this kind of rifle

Israel is one of only a few nations that conscript women or deploy them in combat roles as it is possible to see in the photo below

Finally some snipers painted with their typical helmet
