Historical Board Gaming Russian Set



  • Hey Variable do you know if this is all the pieces? Is there going to be a infantry piece and artillery piece? Thanks for the info. BTW this looks like the best set so far.


  • Sponsor 2017 '13 '11 '10

    Yes, list is on first post.



  • any word on what the front runners are for the french pieces? also wanted to ask if a cruiser can be added the 1939 set up needs 3 and OOB 1940 only has 2



  • @knp7765:

    These will be available in both the OOB Maroon color and the Burgandy color of FMG’s Soviet Combat Dice?

    @Variable:

    Russian set will actually be done in 4 colors. G40 OOB (black-cherry color), maroon from Europe 41 (1999 ed), red for Communist Chinese, and plum (purple) for Spanish Republic. Of course, you can use the 4 colors any way you wish!

    Will the planned red colour for the HBG Soviet pieces closely match the FMG red Soviet Combat Dice?



  • ohh dang i thought this was the french threrad -_-

    Probably not. It will likely be a bit brighter than that. We will know for sure once color swatches have been approved.

    “Coach”,

    Back on Jan. 26 I asked if you planned to release some Russian Airborne Paratroopers in a future set. I looked back over the postings but didn’t see your response.

    I realize you’re busy working on the CURRENT Russian set and this would be in a FUTURE set, but I just wanted to know. Thanks for your time.

    Yes, I plan on doing an Airborne unit for all major nations.


  • Customizer

    “Coach”,

    Great! “Death from the Sky” is a definate (future) possibility for all nations.
    I’m very much looking forward to having this capability in my global-40 games.

    Thanks for your time and all of your work thus far.

  • I ordered some pieces from Coachs site and I noticed he has the sculpts of Russia up on his site. BTW the pieces I ordered are great Coach. I didn’t know if you guys knew this. Coach any idea when these will come out. Thanks again


  • Sponsor 2017 TripleA '11 '10

    Thanks for the compliments! And yep, we know the pic is there. That’s the latest sculpts with a few close up pics. This is what they look like before they are plastic. I will let Coach give a current due date on the set as he is the one in contact with the factory. Neutrals are due out next.


  • '12

    Wow they look great. Im really looking forward for that set, marvelous job coach.


  • '12

    Absolutely beautiful.  Can’t wait!!

    Latest spy photos from the factory test. Test color is olive. No, they’re not making Russians in olive ala AA41  😄

    Very nice! Especially the vehicles. I take it the tank turrets don’t move? I don’t about the rest of you but the infatry’s helmet looks slightly the wrong shape to me. Could just be my eyes though.

    At least the turret of the T-34 is in the wrong position, so I guess they will be movable or the finished product will have it in the correct position.


  • Customizer

    Oh yeah, the T-34 is facing backwards. Well, so far Coach’s tanks do NOT have moveable turrets, although they are molded as a separate piece for better detail, then snapped into place. I’m sure Coach will have them correct that error before the final product is made.



  • in pic #2 it is not however…soo…i say maybe that one is moveable



  • @cminke:

    in pic #2 it is not however…soo…i say maybe that one is moveable

    Nope, the T-34 is the third one from the left in that pic.



  • I’m counting down the days till this set is released.


  • Sponsor 2017 TripleA '11 '10



  • Yes sir!  I got my email today and I’ve already ordered a couple of sets!



  • Now that the Russian set in ready for pre-order. I was wondering what is the plan for a 2nd Russian set? Late-war? Mid-war? I’m asking because this one is called Early War


  • Customizer

    YEAH! Got my order in too.  Looking forward to mid-August.

    @Yavid:

    Now that the Russian set in ready for pre-order. I was wondering what is the plan for a 2nd Russian set? Late-war? Mid-war? I’m asking because this one is called Early War

    Yeah, I kind of wondered about the term “Early War”. Some of the pieces definitely were early war for the Soviets, like the I-16 fighter to name one. Some of the others though don’t seem to fit that term, like the T-34 which didn’t really show up until the first Soviet offensives in the winter of 41/42 and then were used throughout the rest of the war. Also, I thought the Katyusha multiple rocket launcher didn’t show up until later in the war.
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely glad we are getting these pieces in this set. I really want some of them and personally have never been a stickler on the subject of “late-mid-early war”. The terminology is just a little confusing to me is all.
    By the way, a 2nd Russian set may be a ways off. Next up is Germany #2, France and 3 big Japan sets. After that I think he wants to get some Brits done. Maybe more Russians after that? I guess it depends on what the people are wanting the most.
