Russian Support Options - Chechnya 1994
Nothing like a quiet bank holiday to get some hours in front of the brushes.
These are the last of the Modern Russians for the Chechen project, I wanted to bolster the Russian units with a couple of support options
First up a Heavy Machine Gun and Grenade Launcher, that should help keep the attackers at bay.
Based on 2p's I figured in the Laserburn rules rather than worry about crew figures when the team suffers a casaulty both are dead rather than worrying about single figures, that way I can keep the game play clean and fast moving.
Next up 3 Sniper teams, with follow on fire open to them within Imperial Commander they are perfect for keeping whole squads pinned down. The prone figures are actually Australians but when you are under heavy camo netting who can tell?
A couple of command figures to keep their troops in order, Eureka don't have a large variety on this front, so the kneeling officer is from one of the HMG teams.
And finally the mouth peice of the government, a news reporter and camera man, always getting into trouble and in deed of escort....
Not a bad days efforts.
Over 180 Figures done so far this year, so track to beat last years total.
