Stalingrad – Russians – Crossfire

These are my two Russian companies that I have dedicated to the Crossfire Stalingrad scenario.

They have been relabelled with red brown on white for the first (rifle) company and white on red brown for the SMG company.
The figures are a mix of Esci, Atlantic, metal (one Hinchcliffe, but the other metal are I think GHQ).  There is even one Matchbox hard plastic figure in there.

I hope next time I get to play the scenario the new labels aid playability.


  1. Love 'em! Anything Crossfire-related gets my vote ;)
    Just an observation, are you considering matt-finishing them, or do you prefer the gloss look?

  2. I prefer the matt look for WW2. My Napoleonics are finished in satin varnish. These guys for Crossfire were top coated in a heavy duty wood varnish (that unfortunately gave a slight brown tinge to the Germans that is not noticeable with the Russians).

    My intention is to give them a spray of matt varnish and you might well have inspired me to get that done sooner rather than later.
