Bolt Action Soviet Assault Engineers

    Assault engineering brigades were formations designed to storm settlements and to break through heavily fortified enemy lines. They were referred to as "armoured infantry" due to their SN-42 steel breastplate. 

   My assault engineer squad consists of one NCO and four soldiers armed with SMGs, one soldier armed with two panzerfausts and one with a flamethrower.

   I also have an assault engineer medium machine gun team.

   I chose the green "амеба" camo for my assault engineers squad and I painted my miniatures' uniforms with a mix 50/50 of Vallejo 887 Brown Violet and 857 Golden Olive while the dark green amoebas are 896 German Camo Extra Dark Green.

   Speaking of green stuff, here is a fantastic Cretan dish, which I ate recently. Zucchini flowers stuffed with rice and herbs, served with yogurt. 

   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!

  2. I love the look of these models with their body armour and your wonderful painting has me doubting my decision to leave them out. I went for two veteran smg teams instead.
