Hero Rifle Compnay

This is the first of my Soviet infantry for mid-war and late war Flames of War.  These are the older metal Battlefront miniatures.  This is the Hero Motor Rifle Company.  These guys are pretty much like everyone else's infantry in Flames of War as opposed to the more typical hoard infantry of the Soviets.  This unit includes two AT rifle stands.  In the current edition these should be mounted on the large base.  i really have no idea why they moved them to the large base but I decided to keep mine on the medium base that they came with.  According to BF this is an approved solution.

Dreadblade Harrows

This will be the last of the Nighthaunt posts for a while.  These two Dreadblade Harrow models are the last of my assembled Nighthaunts.  I probably will not be getting back to these for a while.  Even though these have been in the paint queue for a while I have used them in a couple of games and I like them.  These really shine when you make one your army general.  I think the models are great.  They were really easy to build and to paint.

Darrakar Guardian of Souls

This is Darrakar Guardian of Souls with Mortality Glass.  This is another model that was a limited edition for some special event.  I can't remember what the event was.  This guy actually gets some new gear and spells and, therefore, is almost worth the spendy price tag.  I have a couple of extra bit left over from this that will allow be to convert an extra Guardian of Souls figure from Soul Wars giving me all three options.

Garkorr Bladegheist Revenant

This is Garkorr the Bladegheist Revenant.  This model is a limited edition and I think it was a store anniversary model or something like that.  The model is very cool but it is not even a special character.  It is just a VERY expensive battleline unit model.  The unit doesn't even have a leader.  That seems like a huge waste to me so I have decided I will use this as a Knight of Shrouds since I only have the mounted version.

Nighthaunt Hexwraiths

For some reason I forgot to document these on the blog.  The are Nighthaunt Hexwraiths and I painted these a while back.  These are basically stock models though I did remove some of the extra danglly skulls.  I've used these in a few battles with mixed results.

Hero SMG Company for Flames of War

The next unit for my Flames of War Soviet project.  This is the Hero SMG Company.  This is 7 stands plus the commissar team.  This unit can also be used as the Armored Reconnaissance Platoon.  The unit was build with my mid-war army in mind but it will also be usable for late war as well.

The figures are all the older Battlefront metal models and are pretty good.
