Hah! Surprise!

After posting last night I got caught up watching something on TV and ended up adding the basing gunk to the cavalry and commander bases while I was watching. Of course, that meant that they were ready for drybrushing and flocking this evening when I got home from work. And that is exactly what I've done. Which means that this batch is finished even earlier than expected, so on with the pics!

The whole batch

Kazanskiy Cuirassiers

Novotroitskiy Cuirassiers

Serbskiy Hussars

Vengerskiy Hussars


As you can see, I've used the "spare" grenadiers from earlier batches to add to these command bases.

And a shot of all my Russians so far to round off this post:

I'm going to need to get another box file as I've got another four foot regiments (plus another four eight at some point) to add and will be adding a lot more cavalry soon.


  1. They look fantastic. I do like painting with the telly on. The footie is a godsend at the moment

  2. Looking quitea force now and the cavalry have turned out really well too.

  3. What a triumph Tamsin, spend job.

  4. Tricornes off! ;-)
