Russian Grenadiers - Finished

I got back home about half an hour ago after my weekend away. I did get the basing done while I was at my Dad's place, so after emptying my bag I quickly took some "finished" pics.

These extras will be added to generals' bases (after touch-ups on the chins!)

They'll be getting their first tabletop outing this afternoon and I expect them to die ingloriously, given that they are newly painted!

I will be taking pics, provided my camera battery has recharged sufficiently before I head out.


  1. Very nice. I thought about using Russians for Borduria in an 18th century imagi-nations project I am starting, but I went with Prussians instead and with Austrians for Syldavia.

  2. Congratulations Miss Tamsin,
    nice painting and great work on the "tricky" flags, it works very well on the pics.

  3. Great looking grenadiers, very nice job!

  4. They look fantastic now they are based!
    How big are the bases?


  5. They do look absolutely splendid.

  6. And very nice they look too!

  7. Hope the game went well and these are very nice


  8. A splendid unit, Tamsin.
    Well done!

  9. They do look nice. I hope they fight as well as they look!

  10. A very nice force you have.

  11. @ Carole - thanks!That sounds like an interesting imagiNations project you're working on :)

    @ Miles - cheers! :)

    @ Adam - thanks! :)

    @ Gilles - merci! :)

    @ Phil - thank you! :)

    @ Peter - cheers! The bases are 30 x 30 mm :)

    @ Michael A - I'm pleased with how they turned out :)

    @ Ray - cheers! :)

    @ Millsy - I always look good (except in some photos) ;)

    @ Ian - the game was fun :)

    @ Stefan - thanks! :)

    @ Clint - they actually fought rather well for newly painted troops :)

    @ Dannoc - I'm rather fond of my SYW Russians :)

  12. Great stuff Tamsin. How did they do on the field of glory? Now that I broke the spell with Millsy's newly painted troops (who did brilliantly in our game and didn't take a single casualty) that old sacred cow is dead!
