From AlexS - Mercenary Longbowmen & Russian Line Infantry Battalion (210 points)


A unit of hired archers manufactured by the Perry brothers, who will be part of my army of Venice. I tried to make them the same as the previous unit.


Russian line infantry battalion to 1812. Once again Perry brothers - in my opinion, the best manufacturers of plastic on the historical wargames, although they have small errors. I'm having difficulty with the right green - he was more light than necessary. Hopefully, next time will be better.




Total - 42 miniatures and 210 points.

Wow, it would seem that we have several participants who are swinging for the parking lot this year! Great work Alex. I particularly like that Russian line battalion, though I think they've left the depot without their banners!  The Czar will be most displeased... ;)

    1. Thank you, Tamsin. I know about this, but in January and then I will have a little free time. Therefore, it is my secret plan: to do now as much as possible, and then to paint a little.

  5. Wow - what a pace! Great results at such speed as well.
    Green looks fine to me, but then the Czar would consider me a slacker...

    1. Thank you, Greg! Due to the fact that we have a very short summer, we are able to work a lot and quickly. And then 9 months of doing nothing :)
