These are my inexperienced infantrymen for my Bolt Action games. According to the special rule "Quantity has a Quality all of its own" of the Red Army, they cost no points. So, anyone who plays Soviets can add a twelve-men squad, like this one, to his army for free.

The specialised Soviet scout units of the Red Army during World War II were forerunners of the modern Spetznaz. The first days of the war, a group of experienced scouts was allocated from the First Directorate of the People's Commissariat for State Security (НКГБ) of the USSR to conduct reconnaissance and sabotage behind enemy lines.

Fences are very useful terrain pieces in wargames. In Bolt Action in particular, wooden fences provide soft cover to infantry squads so it is nice to have a sufficient amount of them.
Fences are very easy to make. I used balsa wood, white glue, putty, sand and some little rocks. I made three different types of wooden fences.

There are three different types of mortars in Bolt Action: the light, the medium and the heavy mortars. The light mortars are team weapons of two men, the medium of three and the heavy of four. If mortars are not inexperienced then they can have a spotter. Sometimes mortars can be game changers, especially the heavy ones. During world war two, Stalin called artillery and mortars the "Gods of War"!
I bought all three Soviet mortar models of the Warlord Games, the 50mm light mortar, the 82mm medium mortar and the 120mm heavy mortar.
