These UN forces make great additions to my games as peacekeepers and such; delivering convoys of food and aid, manning a road checkpoint, or just trying to keep the peace in a troubled neighborhood.
The forces are composed of a variety of vehicles and trucks that one might expect to be found around the world. I think the troops I painted were generic Russian infantry with AK-47's and light gear, painted with the typical light blue beret to distinguish them as peacekeepers.
The sum total of my United Nations (UN) forces.
Here's some of the peacekeepers themselves. I had the extra 1/72nd scale Russian plastic infantry figures, so why not paint them up and put them to some good use.
Here's a modified Corgi Humvee and an M113. Note the 'UN' flag on the M113.
Here's some repainted Matchbox Landrover 4x4's.
More repainted Matchboxes, this time Ford Expedition SUV's.

Side by side view of the same Forces of Valour 1/72nd scale M113. For the 'UN' conversion, the side 'baggage' and cages was removed and saved. The armor and blast shield around the gunner position was removed. The antennae was re-purposed for the UN flag. Some of the removed baggage was added back to the top of the vehicle.
Here are my UN forces in action, escorting a convoy of food through an Iraqi neighborhood.
At this point in the game, a US squad and Humvee from a road checkpoint rushes to the rescue of the UN convoy being overrun by Jihadist's.
