2D6 Wargaming have kindly sent me samples their new WW2 Soviet Naval Infantry to review. At the time of writing this they are available for pre-order and will be released imminently.
The above from left to right: R110 Command Strip; R111 Signals; R112 Riflemen
L to R: R113 SMG’s; R114 LMG Team; R116 82mm Mortar with crew
L to R: R117 120mm Mortar with crew; R118 PTRD Anti-Tank Rifle Teams.
As with their previous Soviet infantry figures, these are very nice indeed. They are crisply detailed with only the bare minimum clean-up required. The figures are well proportioned with some nice poses. There was virtually no flash and little or no mould lines on most figures. The photos above were taken before preparation with only the figure code tags removed.
These are sturdy little chaps and will withstand plenty of handling. They are compatible in size with the new excellent Heroics & Ros figures and match them in quality. More information can be found on the 2D6 Wargaming website https://www.2d6wargaming.com/ and there is also a link on the right. At 50p per strip they represent good value and with the flexibility of only ordering what you need.
I was intrigued as to how they would look painted up and here are the results. An opportunity to paint something other than drab colours for WW2:
So would I recommend them? Definitely! Great for adding a little colour to your Soviet forces and more variety to your Orbats.
