Black Widows

Black Widows

Postby SP> » 07 Jun 2009

In the Russian conflicts in Chechnya rumours abounded that crack female snipers were active. The first sort were the widows or bereavaed mothers/daughters/ sisters of fallen Chechen men who took up arms to revenge their deaths.

The other breed of female snipers was the blonde haired Baltic mercanary fighting for the seperatists against the Russians.

Both figures are from Orion plastic Chechen warriors set.

It's great to see someone else using plastic figures.
Always looking for 6mm Sci-fi, 15mm Sci-fi, 20mm Post-war to Modern, and 20mm WWII.
