Yuri Alibek – Ghost of The Great Bear

  At Golden Growler UK 2001 we were fortunate enough to get a blister with three prototype VOR minis: A Golem (the only Golem mini as far as I know), an old version Union soldier and an old version of a Vanguard. The Vanguard mini is somewhat bulkier than the later Vanguard minis making him the perfect […]

Typhoon with Tempest Mortar

The new and improved Typhoon I was not happy with the result of the previous Typhoon I made. First of all the mini didn’t really came out as I wanted it to be, Second, I think the Chaingun is too short range for a battle crawler. The only real option is the Mortar. On the left you […]

Officer Gulyayev

   The XIAO 3.14PI miniature is from the VOID range and is the best female miniature ever made, only Dragyri females from Dark Age come close, she is just perfect in all ways and I really wanted her in my army, so I turned her into a Neo Soviet officer carrying a Hammer and a Sickle.

Officer Kalinkov and Rad Hound

  I didn’t like the face of the Officer (sorry) so I replaced the face with a mask using a Cyclops head. I removed the Viper and replaced it with the handle of a Khorne Beserker Chainsword with a Boltgun bit on top. This is ofcourse the leash to his Rad hound, which i have […]

Kommander Jancovich

   The Kommander has had his head replaced with a head from a Vindicare Assassin because to me Kommanders would always have the best equipment in the Neo Soviet army so it seemed odd he didn’t have a gas mask as well. I then used the a Vangaurd arm holding a Kalashnikov to arm the […]

Chem Grunts

  I painted two out of the three Chem Grunts in rags. The third was painted in an old white doctor coat, he is probably one of those few nutcases who sign up volunterily for the Chem grunts.

Vanguards

Larger photo The Vanguards have the same basic clothing colours as the Rad Troopers but with better painted armour plates to show that although they still have crap equipment it is by far better than the Rad Troopers equipment. Some of the Vanguards have hand a “hand-job” to give them rad grenades and one have had his […]

Cyclops

  I want the cyclops to stand out from the rest of the Neo Soviets as something unholy and something that shouldn’t have been made/ created. To do that I choose to paint them in a very drastic colour scheme, starting with black and highlighting all the way to white to make the look really […]

Rad Troopers

Larger photo Larger photo Very basic paint scheme to really get the feel across that these guys have the worst uniforms and weapons in the whole Maelstrom.

Typhoon with Chaingun

This Typhoon is scratch-built using some VOID minis and other unknown minis. Not the best weapon of the soviet army. If you want a Typhoon you should definetly build a Typhoon with a Mortar instead. Much much better value.

Team Mutant

To be able to field my ML1-Irontusk mutant I needed a handler and at least one other mutant. However, the Rad Beast have always looked good to me so I painted three of them. As I needed these guys fast for a rapidly approaching game weekend, I have to speed paint them in order to be able […]
