Soviet Megablitz collection

I managed to get all of my Soviet MEGABLITZ collection out of its storage boxes and onto my tabletop ... and then realised just how much I have.

The full collection can be seen in the following two photographs:

The figures and vehicles in the front have already been organised into formations. These are (from top to bottom):
  • A Tank Corps
  • An Artillery Division
  • 66th Army (bottom right)
  • A Naval Infantry Corps (bottom left)

The figures and vehicles at the back have yet to be organised into larger formations and include:
  • 14 Motor Transport stands
  • 4 Horse-drawn Transport stands
  • 2 Artillery Limber stands
  • 1 Anti-tank Gun stand (+ 1 limber stand)
  • 1 Field Gun stand (+ 1 limber stand)
  • 2 Cavalry stands
  • 6 Command/Artillery Observer stands
  • 28 Rifle Infantry stands
  • 1 Machine Gun stand
  • 1 Mortar stand

This is certainly enough to form the basis of quite a sizeable 'army', although it is a little light on artillery.

Please note that the pictures used in this blog entry are quite large, and can be enlarged by clicking on them.


  1. That's starting to look like a respectable collection now Bob; and of course, immaculately finished and varnished, as is your wont.

    Regards, Chris

  2. Chris Kemp,

    Thanks for the compliment ... and I hope that you like the equivalent German collection.

    All the best,


  3. Very nice Bob- you should be pleased with how that all looks together.



  4. Impressive! Seeing this collection, and your battles in past postings, I find it tempting to explore the Megablitz game system...

    it's just a step up (in command level) from Command decision after all... :-)

  5. Pete,

    What surprised me was how much I had in the collection that was yet to be allocated to a larger formation.

    All the best,


  6. Archduke Piccolo,

    The joy of MEGABLITZ is the fact that you can build up quite a sizeable force without too much effort. It is also possible to use some of those 'one off' model vehicles that you might have built years ago and never found a use for.

    By the way, although we tend to use 20mm-scale models (they are still quite cheap and easy to find), there is no reason why other scales could not be used.

    A recent 'convert' to MEGABLITZ (The Dancing Cake Tin) has been writing blog entries about his Soviet Army here.

    All the best,
