Finished - More SYW Russian Infantry Day 5

OK, so I got the bases dry-brushed and flocked this morning and took pics, before spending several hours sorting out the scenario, map, force lists, player briefings and figures for tonight's Gruntz game. I'm now in a bit of a rush to get this posted before I head out to the club!

So, piccies of the finished figures:


My cunning plan of using the 6 leftover "at ready" figures worked a treat!




The musketeer who lost his bayonet is being kept under close scrutiny by his colonel.

Well, there I go - another four regiments completed, taking my army to 16 foot regiments (4 grenadier, 12 musketeer). For my next trick I want to expand my cavalry from 10 to 16 regiments - 3 more horse grenadiers, 1 more dragoons and two more hussars I think are the order of the day. And perhaps a commander in hussar uniform.


  1. As usual impressive and quick.

  2. Jeez you work so quickly girl!! Lol great stuff as always ;-)

  3. A lesson in fielding a fighting force in little time.
    Well done!

  4. Beautiful uniforms and impressive paint job!

  5. I know nothing of the war or the army or uniforms but even so I can spot quality when I see it.

  6. Top work Tamsin......if only the differant regts had differant uniforms!! Bet you're sick of green and red?

  7. Very nice units Tamsin. Great flags.

    @ Michael A - cheers m'Lord! :)

    @ Jonathan F - thanks! Not quite enough here for a full fighting force, but when you add them to the rest of my army they certainly are :)

    @ Phil - cheers! :)

    @ Martin C - thanks! :)

    @ Clint - cheers! I didn't know a lot about the uniforms until I started work on this army. Thankfully I was able to find plenty of good sources :)

    @ Ray - thanks! It does get a bit monotonous - thank goodness for the hussars! :)

    @ Pete - cheers! :)

    @ Peter D - thanks! Glad you like the flags - they're a bit impressionistic, but at this scale that's all you need :)

    @ Paul R - cheers! :)

    @ MWTM - thanks! :)
