Not rehabilitated in the ideological sense – rather these were some quite old Platoon 20 modern Soviet airborne figures I rescued at the Hitchin club’s bring and buy sale. They’ve had a bleach bath and a new paint job. There is an element of nostalgia with these, as I had some of these when I was a kid, and indeed the original Platoon 20 range was made just up the road from my family home. They are definitely showing their age, the sculpts look pretty poor and the facial details are horrible. But, they are a start for my VDV force, with another 20 comrades en route from S&S and some of their new BMD-1s for armour support.
