Ukraine Army

Here is my completed Ukraine Army (excluding armor) that will face off against My recently finished Russians.The miniatures are mostly from rhmodels  while just over a 1/4th are from elhiem. The elhiem minis are from their Syrian which have American style helmets that a number of units can be seen wearing. The rhmodels minis are all from the cold war Russian range which represents the amount of cold war equipment they are using.
I went with three different uniform camouflage patterns. This is because as the conflict wore on and the Gov. forces started going through supplies a number of European countries donated uniforms as part of non lethal aid.

The first is what I believe to be the main uniform prior to the rebellion. Here are a couple of pictures I used as reference:

Here are some of the units painted with this uniform. About 2/3 of the force is in this camo pattern though some have mixed vests and helmet covers. All the Elhime minis are painted this way as well as the six RH minis below.

Another uniform I have seen in many photos is this. It is an overall darker pattern with lots of brown. I don't know the country of origin. I painted six RH minis in this, example pictures fallow.

The last pattern is based off the multi cam used by Germany and the USA in desert/aired theaters. Though not ideal in most parts of Ukraine I imagine the donating nations simply offered them because they had a large amount in storage. 

Here is the whole force, 27 in all.
2 x radio operators
2 x medics
3 x RPG
4 x LMG
2 x HMG
4 x Sniper/designated Marksman
10 x Rfilemen
Tanks and APCs are in the mail.

A lovely collection. Great work on the camo- it matches the set I own very well.
