GSG 9

OK, maybe not GSG9. These are the Revell figures for the German Commando Special Forces, but I will be using them as GSG9 as well in my Cold War Gone Hot games. Just the thing to deal with Spetsnaz and Russian sleeper agents about to cause havoc before WWIII kicks off. They are also great for some "SWAT vs. terrorists" action. Mind you, the weapons are definitely not right for the late 80s, but these look much more varied than the Caesar SAS (that languish somewhere in The Stash).


Here is the complete team. I painted one of each pose. Although these are going to be used in an urban environment, I used my typical "countryside" basing. Black on grey is sooo boring, plus central European cities have substantial park areas (often courtesy of Bomber Command's Urban Planning Division).



Sniper and Spotter. Stay back figures providing intel and long-range hitting power. I would have preferred the spotter having a sniper rifle of his own for those tricky "two-gun jobs", but they look pretty good.





The rest of the team. These were easy to paint, with everything being mostly black. I did paint the helmets, shield and "door knocker" dark blue in order to make them stand out. Probably not entirely correct, but if you belong in the color fanatic crowd, you are probably reading the wrong blog.

That's all from sunny Athens. Now, if I can only entice Thanos of Miniatures and Terrain for a special op against those pesky Soviet agents..

  1. Great job on these Dimitri. The weapons mix is a real pain, but what can you do!

    Keep it up!

  2. Oh, the weapon mix was not a problem Paul. But the prepoderance of black is kind of boring. Hopefully I'll take them out for a spin this weekend. Stay tuned.
