Elhiem Soviet World War II Miniature ranges include:
NKVD: The dreaded NKVD was the secret service of the Soviet Union. They had a reputation of no mercy and brutality and no one was safe from them. As well as acting as secret service, the NKVD also had rifle regiments and controlled all the border guards and security.
RED ARMY EARLY SUMMER: In 1941 when the Nazis invaded Russia, the Red Army was in a terrible state in both organisation and equipment. Our range of Early Red Army Summer reflects the tatty appearance of this force that desperately tried to hold the German forces as the Soviets restructured and reorganized.
Red Army Summer Late War: From 1943, the Red Army abandoned their new socialist uniform policy in favor of a return tot he look of the old Tsarist uniforms although still very much communist. The New uniform and helmet was much smarter and ranks were restored. With the new uniform also came success on the battlefield.
Red Army Winter Late War: As the harsh Russian winters closed in the Red Army had a wide range of specialist uniforms to deal with the extreme cold and snow.
Red Navy: The Red Navy often had to abandon their ships and fight as infantry. As the war progressed they often looked the same as the Army, early on there was a much greater mix of Naval and Army uniforms.
