Yet more Bolsheviks - MartinC (140 Points)

I've finished my Bolshevik infantry, for now. These are more of the Copplestone Figures and have some bad mould lines that I should have worked on more. The painting is OK but I'm still ramping up my painting. Always takes me a couple of weeks to sort out my technique after a long break - I kinda forget how to paint, and I never knew how to photograph.

Infantry

Infantry

Er....Infantry

Cavalry, no wait, Infantry

Lewis gun support

Officers and Commissars - love the megaphone

Maxim gun

The basing is simple and is supposed to represent the Steppe in Autumn - mud.
That is 26 infantry, 3 prone figures and a gun. 
Time to move on to something different.

More Bolshie reinforcements, Urahh! 

Those two Commissars are suitably inspirational (though I suppose anybody is 'inspirational' when they have a Makarov pointed at your head) and I really like the emplaced HMG team as well. Wonderful work Martin. I really quite enjoyed this project of yours and am sorry to see it come to a close. Nonetheless, you've inspired me to get some more of my RCW done so they've moved up the list a few spots - thanks for that! :) 

149 Points for your sterling efforts. Well done, Martin!

  3. Megaphone's a nice touch - your troops should always be prepared to do a bit of agitprop away from the front lines. That Revolution ain't gonna start itself!

  4. There are so many cool figures in the Copplestone Back of Beyond range. I'm tempted *every* time I see them. Nice work Martin!

  5. Wonderful work on the Copplestone figures, Martin! They are an impressive bunch. I really like the officers and supporting gun teams!

  6. Good start. Remember that once on the table you basically see the bases and the upper parts of the minis, the rest remain more or less hidden to the eye; hence don’t go crazy in detail with every single part of the minis
