Hi folks

I'm deffo getting my Mojo back again.. started to take a long hard look at the Munrovian OPFOR.. and will do a full review in next few weeks. I wanted to start to upgrade them with some simple Mods .

So I'm starting to think about Volga and the Volgans.. I blame Richard and Steve ( aka Beatlefan and SKJ ! lol! ).. oh and Chris ( aka Rouge trooper for his Urban squad.. Rolling Eyes  lol! .. oh and Alexander (aka Prof Gangrene for Major Bludds troopers ... Shocked  lol! )

I came across some Uni's while browsing Amazon..I had some Chad Valley boys I was keeping for Volgans as I think they looked the part..cold , merciless killers..

Here is a first fit.. I want to do some more with the helmets and some suitable decals ( these are from Special forces figures) and I think are suitably "Russian'/sorry Volgan.. in outlook.

NCO's beret is from A&S budget AM- fits these guys much better than the A&S headsculpt ( IMHO)- again I'll look for a suitable badge of rank.

3 more Uni's are on order to create a squad of there 1st Volgan Shock troops


Thanks for looking - As I said I want to give these guys just enough attention to make them worth OPFOR for the Munrovians .

Gunner I’m so pleased that you’v getting your Mojo back again. I totally agree with you Gunner on that the Chad Valley figures do have that part..cold look, merciless killers. The 1st Volgan Shock troops outfits they are wearing are simple and plain and really suits them. How many 1st Volgan Shock troops are their going to be ?

Very Happy

Hi team,

I've added a few decals to the Volgans .. helps pull the uni together .. just need a few more additions of equipment and they will look fine I think..

I’m really liking the added few decals that you did to the Volgans. The new Commander looks like a commander and he probably acts like a commander too. I’m also really liking the updates on the Grey Wolves. Question why are they called the Grey Wolfs ?

Well done on getting those unis so homogenized Steve. Looks a fab squad. Very Happy cheers
A helmet that fits over the Max Steele head-sculpt too. Very Happy
Always loved the proportion and articulation on those but the wavy hair head-sculpt was limiting in the kitbash regard.

The decals look great! They really give a sense of completion and a unique identity to the unit.

Well done, Steve!
