Recently I've had a concentrate on WWII so have not had much of a chance to work on any Cold War stuff - so I thought I'd like to paint something a bit different for a change - and decided to tackle Elhiem Figures Soviet Military Policeman.
Fortunately - Matt's great little figure is fairly similar to the Ron Volstad illustration of a Soviet MP is Steven Zaloga's Osprey classic "Inside the Soviet Army Today". Bear in mind, by today we mean 1987! Here is the pic:
And here is my guy:
Please ignore his zombie-like face - not sure what that's all about, but I swear he doesn't look quite so "dead" in real life.... I might just re-visit his face at some point.
So - no idea if I'll ever use him in a game. I do have MP units in my lists which have the "Rear Area Security" special ability - which allows you once a game ro re-roll a reserves/re-inforcements roll. If I want to field that unit I need to paint up 3 more MPs... I can see that happening now!
