Khurasan releases 15mm Motor Rifles and BMP-1
« on: June 10, 2014, 05:35:05 PM »
We are very pleased to release 15mm 1970s Soviet Motor Rifle Infantry and a 15mm model of the BMP-1 Infantry Combat Vehicle.

The Soviet Motor Rifle Infantry are in the uniform adopted around 1970, the first attempt to update the infantryman's very dated uniform from its essentially WWII appearance.  (That said, you can probably fudge and use them before 1970 too.)  We have released three sets.


The rifleman set (above) has four poses with AK, including one with a medic bag, as one man per squad received nominal medical training.


For heavy weapons (above), each squad had a man with an RPG, an assistant to the RPG rocketeer who had an AK, and an RPK (a squad automatic weapon).  This set has three different poses of each, meaning each heavy weapons (and RPG assistant with AK) pose in the platoon of three squads is unique.


For platoon assets (above) we provide you with a platoon leader with pistol, an assistant platoon leader with AK, the platoon marksman with the Dragunov sniper rifle (this figure would replace one of the men in the platoon), and, attached from company level, two teams of PKM machine guns. 

We also have a complete platoon bundle of one each of those three sets.  This gives you a full Motor Rifle Platoon, ready for action with one click!

3 x Motor Rifle Infantry Squads, each with one rifleman/medic, one riflemen/RPG assistant, three other riflemen, one RPG and one RPK
1 marksman (swap him out for one of the above models)
1 command cadre (platoon leader and assistant platoon leader)
2 x attached PKM machine gun teams


Along with those models we have also released our 15mm scale BMP-1.  This is an extremely important vehicle in the history of the Cold War and has fought on countless battlefields, continuing to do so today.  The model's AT missile is depicted with its fins folded down.  It is a mixture of resin and pewter and requires the normal level of modeling skill for a kit of this nature.

On a related note, our T-55 kit, long out of stock, is finally available again.  We are hoping to have the T-62 back soon as well -- we're just waiting for the pewter mould to be remade.

The Motor Riflemen were sculpted by Mike Broadbent and painted by Steve Dean.  The BMP was painted by Heresy.  Available now at the link below:

Lookin' good.  Since I'm tempted to try a strategic level Cold War game I might have to pick some of these up some time.

Very nice!!!

BMP-1 is one of my favourite vehicles, at least look wise!

BTW Mr. K by any chance will you be doing figures for Iran-Iraq?
