Flags of the Valieskan Civil War

I've created flags for the main factions of the Valieskan civil war:

The old State of Valiesk (1993-2009)

Government of the Republic of Valiesk ("Loyalists")

National Salvation Forces ("Rebels")

Red Front

Black Freedom

The White Legion

Loyalist BTR-70s ready for action!

I've painted today three QRF BTR-70s for the Loyalists. While I'm not completely pleased with the result of the inking wash I used to flesh out their details, they look like they've seen some action, which is very appropriate - the Loyalists have mostly old Cold War-era gear at their disposal.

And here they are:
And a closer look at one of them:
Tomorrow I'll paint the Loyalist troops themselves, in similar colors to their BTRs: olive-green uniforms and steel helms, armed with AK-74s, RPK-74s and RPG-7s.

Loyalists: Primed!

I've finished priming the Loyalist forces, so here they are - I hope I'll be able to paint them this weekend.

Loyalist Work-in-Progress

The Loyalist Mechanized Rifle Platoon is slowly but surely taking shape. Now all troopers are based, and neatly form three rifle squads, each with four AK-74s, two RPK-74s, and an RPG-7, as well as a three-men command team with a kneeling platoon CO. All of these ride the BTR-70s, one for each squad; maybe I should buy a UAZ jeep for the command team? Or would they ride one or more of the BTR-70s?

Once I'll put my grubby hands on some decent white Gesso primer, I'll prime them, then paint away! The next step is, of course, buying and painting the Rebels and their expensive Western vehicles (HUMMERs and maybe an M3 Bradley).

BTR-70s under production!

I've assembled three 15mm BTR-70s from QRF to serve with the Loyalist Mechanized Infantry. The next step is priming and painting them in olive green.
