First Look

Modern Russian Tankman

High Calibre Miniatures sent over this really nice release from Evolution Miniatures which features a standing Russian Army tanker in modern gear. The figure is cast in gray resin and if you look closely at the photo to the right, you can see how sharp the casting and original sculpt is, from the fiber collar on his jacket to the pockets on his fatigue pants to the details on his helmet and face. Very nice!

This figure will be easy to build and paint as the head is provided separately and the figure's hands are in his pocket, so all you need do to the body is paint up the uniform and then you can focus your skills on the face.

If you're looking for some life to pose in front of youer next modern Russian armor project, this is just what you've been looking for!

My sincere thanks to High Calibre Miniatures for this review sample!
