With all those desert camo Americans and Afghan war Soviets around, the Arab-Afghan faction also needs some reinforcements. So, meet Abdul.

Abdul is sculpted in FIMO, cast in resin, and with his generic AK-chicom pouch gear, with simple head swaps he could easily be Pablo or Kwame too. Maybe even Vladimir or Nguyen.

Yeah, whipping out comrade Kalashnikov usually means party time.
It is aways a fine balancing to design this kinda universal figure, the next ones I plan to be more theatre-specific.

Loving the TOW!
Em dezembro de '81
Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo

Thanks! I was thinking about putting it onto a diorama base, but I generally do not like big bases (60mm heavy weapon team bases in 40k for example), hard to move around on the terrain.

You could use a large base with sabot type holes for the figures.

I can not make separate bases for the figure and the weapons, because that way I can not put them close together enough. I also can not fix to a weapon for a large base and leave a hole only for the figure because that way I would have a rocket launcher model with the storage need of a tank model. Decisions, decisions:) I will just keep them separated, maybe I will just make separate small diorama bases for the accessories like ammo boxes for the feeling.

Two more Arab guys. Figures from CMK, they are from the 90s when these topics were really unique, but these sculpts start showing their age now.

A 1/72 helicopter, a Hind for the Afghan war Soviet Army. (No mistake here, this is a Mi-24A, the first version with box shape nose, 3 men crew and a weaker machine gun. The Gatling gun and the characteristic double bubble canopy was a later improvement) The model was built originally by someone else, but it needed a lot of renovation/repaint and I also added the flight stand.


Also two ladies for the mercenary faction.

More Afghan war soviets. Mostly ICM figures (mostly converted to some degree), the one in the middle is from Dragon.

A.  Nice looking figures.

B.  I would NOT want to meet that chick with the grenade launcher in a dark alley.  Or even a well-lit one.... :)

C.  I too like that dismounted TOW launcher.
