1/300 Coldwar Commander Bulgarians

Following on from the Landjut Campaign photos, here are some shots of my Bulgarians. This is meant to be an Independent Tank Brigade from the mid to late 1980s. This means there are 3 Tank Battalions, and one Mechanized Battalion with supports, and I've tried to photograph these best as I can - they are very small! Some of the models are straight from Heroics and Ros or Scotia, but a few I've had to convert myself.

Mechanized Battalion


BMP-30  + Gaz 69 (Both from Heroics and Ros, the 2S1 has a BMP-2 turret and rear doors added)
technically the BMP-30 is a bit new for this force, but I snuck one in on an HQ stand.

BMP-23 (similar conversion to the BMP-30, but using a re-profiled CV9040 turret)

Full Unit

Recce Unit

Scotia PT-76


Motorcyles (H+R WW2 German motorcyles + sidecars. The Bulgarians used a helmet style very similar to the WW2 German one, and the Soviet motorcyle combinations were copies of German ones, so it's all ok!)

Looks a bit quicker to get to the table than the Blood Pact.
