Liberating America after the Apocalypse!

Inspired by the excellent Metallica video for "All Nightmare Long" (it really is a great video, even if you don't like their music, plus the song itself is inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft story The Hounds of Tindalos), I thought it might be fun to add some Soviets to my ongoing post-apocalypse mini collection.

Eureka Miniatures makes these excellent "1980s Soviets in NBC gear" and I ordered Set #2. This gave me more than enough minis for a small squad to help "liberate" the shattered remnants of post-apocalypse America. This includes a medical officer, 2 troopers, a specialist with flamethrower, a specialist with light DP machine-gun, and 2 specialists with the ubiquitous RPG-7.

"Do not fear, American comrades! We have come to liberate you from capitalist oppression!"

Those came out great man. Do you know how well they match up to the Ratnik/ Lead Adventure not "Stalker" figs?

@Doomie: I don't have any Lead Adventure stuff but they're 28mm and scale well with EM4 Post-Apoc stuff, if that helps.
