A little diversion here, though continuing with the Soviet theme...

I was cleaning out a box of unfinished minis and found these 28mm Eureka 1980's NBC suit Soviets hiding in the back. I decided to finish them up and get them out of my backlog since they only needed a little work on weapons and packs to finish. Besides the NCO, Sniper with Dragunov, Specialist with Geiger Counter, and the LMG gunner with the PK, there are five grunts with AK-47s left to finish.

I picked these up a few years ago at one of the conventions with the intention of using them in a zombie outbreak containment game set in the city of Pripyat, Ukraine after the Chernobyl disaster. Eureka actually sells these and a set of zombies to go with them for just that purpose.

All I need yet are the zombies! I'll probably need a bunch of them though...


  1. Looks great! Did you see the Metallica video for "All Nightmare Long"? Good Stuff!

  2. Yes! That video rules! That's the color of the NBC suits I was going for. Institutional puke green.

  3. Very well done. And these are excellent figure from Eureka. If I did that scale for Moderns the Eureka would be some of the first figures I'd buy.
