Battlefront have been adding to both the Brown Water Navy range and their existing (and very extensive) World War II range too. Not only do they have some new terrain in the form of Jungle Bushes for the Vietnam game but also some new plastics! See what you think of their new Strelkovy Company…
Below you can see the models both painted and available on the sprue. One of the big things about this change to plastic is that they appear to have become more detailed than the metal counterparts AND you don’t get big head syndrome either!
The boxed set comes with enough models to make an Officer, Komissar, NCO, DP LMG, Riflemen and a Maksim HMG many times over. Basically if you need a backbone for your Soviet force then you have it in this infantry set. You get six of these sprues so that’s quite a lot of men.
Hiding In Bushes
As well as the fighting in frosty Eastern Europe we have some Jungle Bushes that are perfect for the sweltering heat of Vietnam where you need any kind of cover to hide from the enemy. Or conversely, to ambush him…
These bushes are nice and dense meaning that they actually block line of sight which is usually a major problem when it comes to foliage on the tabletop. As you can see in the image above it’s being used for a deadly river ambush.
Will you be playing in Vietnam or Europe?
