New Soviets for Bolt Action

I acquired a box of plastic russians in summer gear from The Plastic Soldier Company.  57 models for $26!

After finding a picture of the sprues included, here is what I have come up with for a starter army based on just that box and a Maxim HMG bolt action pack for added support.

This is what they will look like painted.
