I made a rare impulse buy, and purchased PSC’s new plastic T-55s at Vapnartak. I decided to resurrect my old ‘Afghanistan’ project, which I walked away from when it was almost complete.
First up, some terrain featuring one of Peter Pig’s T-55 wrecks:
There’s a walkthrough of how I made the hill here: http://nerdlard.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/desert-hill-and-burned-out-t-55.html
I’ll post more stuff as the project progresses.21/04/2018 at 00:54 #89110kyoteblueParticipant
Looks very good.21/04/2018 at 10:12 #89117MikeKeymaster21/04/2018 at 11:15 #89118
It is indeed, Mike. There’s a step-by-step on my blog but I just posted the short version here.21/04/2018 at 13:00 #89122irishserbParticipant
Yes, very nicely done!22/04/2018 at 02:42 #89146

That is really good Catullus – very impressive.
If you don’t already, you should really get a copy of Lester Grau’s “The Bear Went Over the Mountain: Soviet Combat Tactics in Afghanistan”. Excellent read for the Soviet war in Afghanistan, & great source for scenarios
Also, Ostfront’s rules Hind & Seek (Soviet-Afghan War) seem to me pretty good [ caveat: I’ve not played them, just read through] for the conflict

cmnash, I bought a copy of Hind and Seek after seeing posts about it here. I haven’t played it (I use a home brew version of Crossfire) but there are a lot of things in it that I like, such as the tidy way of dealing with hidden movement and that you have to take into account the reactions of the civilian population to your antics.
I think The Bear Went Over the Mountain is on my Amazon shopping list. I’m just waiting for some money to pay for it!24/04/2018 at 17:48 #89322
While I’m online, here are pictures of my first Soviet infantry unit. The BMP-1 is Old Glory. The figures are mostly Old Glory with a few Peter Pig miniatures mixed in. More details on the blog, as usual: https://nerdlard.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/soviet-infantry-squad-in-afghanistan.html24/04/2018 at 17:56 #89323
NKL Aerotom, I’d like to take credit for the wrecked T-55, but it’s pretty much as the miniature arrived from Peter Pig. All I did was file off the dead bodies. It’s a very good miniature, especially for the price.26/04/2018 at 05:24 #89440
