Just finished some 15mm Chechens for Cornered Wolf.

These are all from Eureka miniatures, with some green stuff papakha's added. the BMP-2 in the background is from GHQ.

Support weapons: NSV, Mortar and AGS-17.
Note these close ups aren't too flattering – I'm going for speed rather than 'going all out', but they look ok from at least 12" away, so will be good for gaming.

A wolf pack. RPG-7 and RPG-18 for good measure:

Another wolf pack:

Yet another wolf pack:

They look darn good to me, close up and all.

Another wolf pack. Tried to give the sniper some 90s slav sportswear…

They certainly look the part! Got some AARs inbound for us soon?

The trash and/or pamphlets on the bases are a great idea. I had not considered that for 15mm figures.

I will have to take that idea for my next basing.
How do I make a 15mm soda can?

How do I make a 15mm soda can?

Hmm, perhaps use the a bit of wooden dowel or wire cut to size? Maybe some lead from an old color pencil could be trimmed and carved into one?
As long as you get the rough cylindrical shape you should be able to fake everything else with paint.
