The first batch figures from the painting tray are complete and they are Cold war Swedish infantry. They are all part of H&R new range of Swedish infantry and they are great sculpts. I went for bright colours on the uniform as they are 6mm and it helps them stand out, and photos online of the summer uniforms showed a pretty bright shade of green. All the other uniform bits are green, so I used a few different greens for the webbing and helmets. Basing to come obviously.
I’ve got another batch to go and then I will have 2 companies of infantry, a few spare command, 120mm mortars and some Bantam ATGM (which you can see here).
Funnily enough, while I was looking for something else , I found some old Mainforce infantry that I used for a number of years as Swedish infantry. I’m pretty sure they are West German figures and I’m not sure where that colour scheme came from! I noticed that they were never finished as a lot of the figures only have their uniforms finished, and I haven’t painted any weapons, flesh or webbing. I have a vague memory that I was painting these for a convention (playing WRG Modern rules) and I think once that was over they got packed away and forgotten about.
