RAND's Jason's predicted this back in the 1970's and it looks like they were right!

Dilemma. Well I have the basic Russian platoon formation in Warlord Game figures for (early war to at least 1943) Russians [Stalingrad and the basic Chain of Command OoB] but I was left with a sprue of eight men. I had to urge to "clear the Russian project shelf" so rather than make some 'basic rifles' I wondered what to do with them. In the end I went for the following mix - an observing prone "officer type" with binoculars, two LMG teams [as the latter part of the Stalingrad campaign seemed to be pushing them into OoBs] and three SMG's - two of which were "Tank Hunters" with a short life expectancy (see below, my last Soviet raw plastic ready for the 'paint shop'):
The same but posed for Pravda camera shot (see below, "Defenders of Stalingrad drive the Fascists Back into the Volga") :
Job done :)
Albeit with painting to follow!

Ha! I am finally getting round to putting together my "First Edition" Test of Honour figures together (bearing in mind the game system has already moved onto the second edition that tells you how late I am on this). The samurai and commoners were an interesting multi-part build (ahem, understatement) and let it be said that I appreciated the fact that only twelve figures were needed for the first scenario (see below, now primed and washed):
I am sketchy on the clans, but suffice it to say I will keep to the box art and there will be a Blue Team and a Red Team.
