Brigade Models Neo-Soviet ground forces have recently been receiving all sorts of upgrades, with new types of tank and assault gun in both 6mm and 15mm scales.
The one thing they needed to support these new vehicles was an armoured infantry carrier capable of keeping up with the tanks. Well, today that arrives in the form of the new BMP-BM.
This vehicle is based on the chassis of the Bars tank, with a new superstructure capable of carrying six fully-equipped Guards riflemen. The rear-engined design precludes doors at the back of the vehicle, so access is via a two-piece hatch at the front next to the driver’s station.
The release also includes a Guards Infantry Company with eight BMP-BM, a Lisa command vehicle and 48 infantry. There is also a new Guards Army Pack with 12 Bars tanks, 4 Terminators, 8 BMP-BM, command vehicles and infantry.

Hind & Seek is a ruleset from Ostfront all about asymmetrical warfare set in the Soviet-Afghan War and is aimed at company to battalion sized games, in 6mm or 3mm scale. Larger scales can be used just as easily, from 10mm and 15mm, up to 1/72 scale.
The goal has been to provide a game where a small, poorly armed force can stand on even terms with a larger, better armed one. Hind & Seek tackles this in two ways: firstly, with a ‘strength’ system. Each faction has a strength value, which can be used to purchase forces on the table, or assets. Assets include recon, weapons caches, roadside mines, pre-prepared firing positions, escape routes, air-drops of anti-personnel mines, air blocking elements, night-time insertions and various other options, tailored to each faction. For example, only the Mujahideen (Afghan resistance fighters) have roadside mines and weapons caches, while only the Soviets have air blocking elements and aerial insertions or mine drops.
In this manner, a small force could have a large number of assets allowing it to stand against a larger force. A small Mujahideen force might have prepared firing positions, weapons caches and escape routes, allowing it to strike and run against a larger Soviet force. Likewise an elite Soviet force might have all the bells and whistles of an extremely detailed and well-planned operation – extensive training, night-time insertions, blocking escape routes with helicopters and so on, to allow a small group of airborne elites to cut off and destroy a larger Mujahideen force. Assets also have a dual purpose where they can counter enemy assets. The Mujahideen keep ambushing from that village? Bulldoze it. The Soviets are using helicopters to block off your escape routes? hit them with anti-air fire to drive them off!

Khurasan are very pleased to release their latest Cold War/Modern Armour vehicle in 15mm scale, the T-64BV.
This would have been the most dangerous adversary Western tanks would have faced on a late Cold War battlefield in Central Europe, combining the advanced features of the T-64 with reactive armour. The vehicle did not see combat during the Cold War but as it was manufactured for the Soviet Union in Ukraine, it is being used by both sides in the current Donbass conflict.
The kit is in resin with pewter details and is available on both their 80s Cold War and Modern Russian ranges.
