Here's part two of my "Khaki-Project" the larger part of my 15mm Crimean War Russian army.
There are 3 16 man infantry regiments, the colours are tin foil and I more or less freewheeled on the design.
There are also two cavalry squadrons of 4 men each:
Oh and a gun served by 3 gunners:
After painting these I still have to do their British counterparts but probably not for this Challenge, I now do know I do not like to paint 15mm figures, way too small for me. I'll stick with 20mm and 28 mm.
Sander, this is an excellent entry. Crimean War is another period that has always piqued my curiosity, but intimidated me at the same time too much to try it, so I love seeing the efforts of others. Your brief reference to the unit flags being made from tin foil and the colours being done freehand belies, I suspect, a considerable amount of effort - particularly as I think they turned out quite nicely. Well done.
I am a huge fan of 15mm myself, but I can relate to having a certainly feeling of "scale remorse" after I've embarked on a project. Perhaps some time and work on other projects will offer a chance to re-connect with 15mm, and the Crimean War, as I would love to see the Brits for these fellows to come up against.
I think anyone who spends time messing around with tin foil to come up with hand-painted unit flags deserve at least a LITTLE extra, so this will net you 140 points. Great stuff!
