I've been playing some Cold War skirmish games recently and having great fun with them. I needed some Soviet officers for this and Matt from Elheim very kindly obliged.

You can see some pictures here.


They are lovely sculpts and painted up rather well, if I say so myself.

"Al ist clar Herr Kommissar !" … Nicely done !

I appreciate the pop culture reference and all, but still…

Maybe better to be ready on game day with an enthusastic: "Точно так товарищ комиссар!"

(ie: phonetically: "Toechno tak toavarish comissahr")

(ie: "Exactly so Comrade Commissar!")

Which, in my admittedly limited exposure to Soviet military methods, would have been the most acceptable response.

It reminds me a bit of this old poster.

My Russian is very rusty … evil grin And I kind'a like that old song … And something similar from that era "99 Red Balloons"/99 Luftbaloons. I think it is called.

Plus Sting's "Russians" … My old Cold War Warrior/age is showing … old fart

Gotta love the propaganda. Of course our brave comrade, under the headline "Military Commissar – Father and Soul of his Party" is carrying and displaying his copy of "TRUTH" (Pravda) as he waves the boys forward.
