Thank you, Charles!

I made the rifle and binoculars slings and also enchanced the highlights on the wrinkles of the uniform slightly, for more faded look:







Cheers!

Thank you, Keigan!

Mario, I have something in mind-mountain/hilly scene, but first I intend to make the vignette for the "Duck feet" Navy SEAL

Amazing work!

Figure painting is always the hardest task for me. The attention to detail and skill you have is something I really admire.

Painted the Adidas sneakers and the sleeping bag (I guess). I have to make the rifle and binoculars straps, and some touch-ups on the uniform

Thanks again, Mario!

Those Adidas sneakers don't seem to be standard Red Army footwear...

Beautiful work so far!




Thank you, Israel!
I'm pretty sure wearing the standard boots in hot weather is real pain, so they probably preffered the sneakers. And in Special troops they were allowed to wear non-formal equipment, as far as I know

Painting the AKS-74 and gluing the arms.







Cheers!

Continuing with the base color of the Gorka suit, highlights and bleaching with mixing with lighter color:

Closer photos, and I think this is the one of the best faces I've made so far (not mentioning the superb sculpt, of course), I just like the expression so much

Starting with the face and head painting, first time using Scale75 Flesh colors set and I really like them-they blend nicely and with good consistency

This looks to be great figure and we'll cast



The detail is excellent indeed

What I found for the uniform is that is called Gorka ("Горка"-Костюм горный in Russian), i.e. Mountain suit, the other name was "Mobutu".

Gorka

The color looks like khaki, but I'm sure there are variations.

I'm not very familiar with that type of Spetsnaz uniforms, so any info for the colors would be appreciated

Thanks!

I'm presenting this very nice figure from Evolution miniatures-soviet officer from GRU-Glavnoye Razvedyvatelnoye Upravleniye (Гла́вное разве́дывательное управле́ние in Russian), i.e. Military intelligence (from Aghanistan 1984-1989).
The figure is superbly cast, my only worry is the attachment point on the muzzle of the AKS-74-one should be very careful when removing the weapon.
