Assembling The Strelkovy Company
A Strelkovy Company is made up of an HQ Section containing a Command Rifle/MG team with optional Komissar team, and one, two or three Strelkovy Platoons, each containing seven Rifle/MG teams.

To assemble the Command Rifle/MG team, use one Officer figure, one NCO figure and one rifleman, on one of the small three-hole bases provided in the box set.

The Komissar team uses a Komissar figure and a rifleman, on a small two-hole base.

Each Rifle/MG team is made up of riflemen, NCOs and LMG gunners, as indicated above.

The Maksim HMG team uses three figures on a medium base: the two-part HMG gunner, the loader, and a rifleman. Using a four-hole base, you can fill in the unneeded holes with a base plug.

Of course, if you would prefer to field two under-strength companies – one with two Rifle Platoons and the other with just one – the box gives you enough command teams to do so. So this box can give you an entire game-ready Strelkovy Battalion, just waiting for you to add whatever support options you like. Whichever way you look at it, this box makes it easier than ever before to start a Flames Of War Soviet infantry army!

And, if you choose not to attach the Maksim HMG teams to your Stelkovy Company (or Companies), the box gives you enough teams to form a full six-strong Strelkovy Machine-gun Company as well.
