Zvezda 1/72 Soviet Cavalry 1935-42

KIT #: 6161
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Two mounted figures

Continuing with Zvezda's wargaming items for their Art of War series, we have a pair of mounted cavalry troops. The Soviets were one of the last nations to actively use mounted cavalry during WWII. Not surprisingly, once it was realized how ineffective they were in modern warfare, the remaining cavalry became armored. Interestingly, most of the Soviet tank commanders came from the cavalry ranks.

This set included two figures, complete with their horses. There are also bases on which one can mount these figures individually or together. A movement card is included. Any painting information will need to come from the box art as these kits generally do not include that information.

Whether you are a wargamer, or just want something a bit different for a diorama, these are nicely molded kits that I think you will like.
