Mongrel Miniatures

United Kingdom

Cold War-era Soviet foot
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 26½M.
Mixes best with: Brooks Miniatures.
Long Review: Since I'm still new to Moderns, I'll confine my comments to the actual figures. I promise that I will, however return to this review once I've studied up on the kit worn and carried!
The two packs of Soviets are combat engineers in a variety of poses- everything from mine detectors to kneeling and probing with a bayonet or stick. There are even two guys with sniffer dogs. The Airborne are all dressed in the one-piece suit worn by Soviet special forces troops, and have a huge variety of weapons, even a sniper rifle.
Commentary: Since I started the Moderns pages, I'm starting to look at Modern figures with different eyes. These are another chapter in my education- more gorgeous figures. Best of all- they will mix well with Brooks Miniatures, so you have a really large selection available.
Historical Accuracy: Five Good.
Pose Quality: Four Average.
Sculpting: Four Good.
Casting: Four Average.
Sources: Samples from Mongrel Miniatures donated by Frank Hammond.
Sculptors: Andy Dormer and Paul Hicks.
