2008 saw a rarity of the 21st century, the meeting of professional military forces on the field of battle in a developed country. You can read the politics of it on this wikipedia entry.
I started a test figure of the Georgian army several months (?) ago. I was kind of pleased with the result so I went ahead with a few more last night.

These guys are the bodies of Caesar's US in desert uniform. I chose them because of my massive surplus of the set and because they have the M4 carbine, which according to my sources is used by the Georgian army.
I swapped heads with the excellent Italeri WW2 Soviets. Because the plastic of both these sets is rather hard, I had to change my Conversion method by adding the staple to the very hard head, and boring a small hole in the neck of the Caesar figure and inserting the spike.
According to camopedia, the main camo used by Georgia is the USMC green MARPAT.
|I had to guess at the composition of the unit, I may convert one of the figures here to a LMG later.|
|The test figure, I added the back pack form the Dragon Bradley kit, just because. Note the Georgian flag patch.|
Other things on the bench.
I wanted a couple sniper teams to go with my ultra modern US armies. Enough said....
|The Caesar sniper with Pegasus Vietnam observer, he will probably be done on UCP or desert MARPAT|
|Hmm, he would look good in Multcam. I used the M14 leftover from an Iraqi conversion I did with a Vietnam body, wow I'm complex and frugal!|
