This collection of figures would not have been possible without the help of my very good friend, Terence "the Convertimator" Corrigan, a South African fellow currently residing in Taipei.
 
These figures can be used to represent Afghani Mujahadeen fighting the Soviets in the 1980s, Northen Alliance vs Taleban in the post-Soviet era, and Taleban remnants fighting the US forces today.
 
The US Forces are standard Revell Modern US. The Mujahadeen have been built from a mix of Esci Muslim Warriors, Spetsnaz, Warsaw Pact, and lots of putty.
 
The Soviet Spetsnaz (bottom) are standard Esci figures painted by Joe Barette.
