Armies On Parade – the (NEW) Holy Soviet Army

Right, then, here we go! So, after Jim’s revamp of his decadent capitalist lackeys, I decided my righteous warriors of the proletariat needed a bit of a sprucing up. Rebased the infantry and tarted up the tanks, along with some new mechs and toys.

So, here they are – Task Force Polikarpov:

Rampager super heavy tank with twin 140mm cannons (scratchbuild)

Mecha – Kolossus super heavy (Stompy Uncle Joe) and Shock Drones , all scratchbuilds

Armour platoon – four T-48s, three scratchbuilds and one T-54 from 4D models.. see if you can spot which is which!

T-48 Inferna variant mounting heavy flamethrower and assault saw! (scratchbuild)

Elektra – T-48 chassis and turret swapping 100mm cannon for Tesla Lightning Launcher (scratchbuild)

…..and some shots of the entire force in parade ground formation! I’ve detailed the armour painting scheme in a previous post, and the infantry scheme in another one.

Command  –

Platoon Headquarters : Lt, Commissar, RTO, Standard Bearer, 3 x Riflemen

Line

Rifle Squad (No. 1)

Rifle Squad (No. 2)

Rifle Squad (No. 3) – Flamethrower replaces Light Machine Gun

Heavy Weapon Squad (No. 4) – reinforced with Lightning Launcher

Support

Strong Men (Sil’nyye muzhchiny) Close Assault Squad

Lightning Storm (Ataka grozy) Attack Squad

Artillery Observation Team

Special –

Noble Sniper (Blagorodnyy Snayper)

Holy Mystic (Svyataya Misticheskaya) & Entourage

Vehicles

T-48 Platoon (4 x T-48 including 1 command tank)

SU-152 Assault Gun

IS-6 Rampager

“Inferna” variant T-48

“Elektra” variant T-48

Kolossus Super Heavy Mech

Shock Drone section (2x Shock Drones)

 

Overall, this force represents the slow, impregnable, shockingly violent rolling firestorm that the Holy Soviet Army should be in Apocalypse: Earth – a crushing hammer blow instead of the rapier pin pricks of the Atlantic Alliance nemesis! Always fun to roll these guys out, and this time, this time, Jim – I’ll ‘ave yer!!
