RJ-R02 Russian Troopers advancing I
RJ-R03 Russian Troopers firing/loading I
As you can see, these are rather well equiped soldiers. In contrast to the Japanese the Russians used to have their bayonets fixed permanently to the rifles, therefore they also didn't carry scabbards.
Although I've been struggling at first to do the Russians at all, I'm very pleased with how these have turned out and my compliments to Paul for his great work! (I hope this doesn't sound snotty. ;-))
As to the question what will be next, well, if everything goes as planned we'll see a HMG with crew for both the Japanese and the Russians and also a command set to go along the Russian troopers later this year. (Maybe even more variants of the Russian troopers, but that's not definite, yet.)
