Challenge Day 29 - Post 1: Russian Grenadiers

I wasn't expecting to be posting pics of these until Sunday, but Curt's fingers slipped and he posted them early. So, here you go - the 1st and 2nd Grenadier regiments for my Russian Seven Years War army.

I completed these two regiments quite quickly, when you consider all the fiddly details that needed to be painted. Like the flags. My dog, they were a complicated design to try to recreate freehand.

So, here you go - the pics:







1st Grenadiers





2nd Grenadiers

These scored me a handy 74 points.

However, I'm glad I will only ever have to paint two more Russian grenadier regiments (the 3rd and 4th) - those bleedin' backs of the mitres...and the flags...

  3. @ Michael A - "boom bang-a-bang" Glad you like them :)

    @ Clint - no more grenadiers for a while, but 6 regiments of Russian musketeers to come.

    @ Ray - the prospect of doing the flags was scarier than actually doing them in the end :)

    @ Stoke s- thank you sir! :)

    @ Dannoc - indeed they are old chap :)
