Ahead of our half term Ultimate Smackdown battle, Dan's posted his new look Holy Soviet Army force, complete with conversions, scratchbuilds and general bodges!

I'm rooting for the "forces of the decadent capitalist lackeys!" grin

Na Rodina! That puts the Mother into Holy Mother Russia!

Thanks (I think) Frederick! :-) can't wait to get our new gear christened, should be an epic fight. Will post batrep as soon as it's done!

Frederick, Na Rodinu not "na rodina", will be the slogan for the troops, returning home. (was written on a steamers, bringing demobilized soldiers back to Soviet Union)
"Za Rodinu" ( i.e For Motherland!) was a common slogan during WWII and is more appropriate in this case.

though real siberians might kill for them being converted from orcs ;)
Reminds me of ages old Chaos Dwarf Soviet army on GW site…

Now you're talkin! We got into Weird War 2 and I found the Soviets in WW2 were quite into hover technology, so the T-34 Hovertank joined the fray quite an easy conversion fwiw

Oh now they are just TOO cool! Might have to give something like that to the League of European Nations faction… A "Fliegermaus", something like that :-)

Keep it up SKG,

Great conversion/scratchbuilding work.

Thanks zrunelord! Taken quite a bit of inspiration from your stuff – you might notice the IDE cables serving as tank tracks? That was from your blog! :-)

Cheers zrunelord, praise from the master! Next up will be the European and Chinese factions, looking forward to brainstorming so weirdness with those guys :-)
