|I did use the right flock this time!|
Yes, this post is the end of my 15mm SYW Russians for now. To be honest, I'm glad to have them out of the way and ready to take the field in one of our club's big bank holiday games.
Let's start with the infantry.
To assuage my megalomania, there are another thirteen infantry regiments that fought in the SYW to paint. And the Corps of Observation for earlier battles, so this is not the end of my collection.
I might have gone a bit too far with highlighting their cloaks, but they still look OK.
I had two spare cuirassier troopers, so decided to add them to bases as "lifeguards" for a couple of the generals - maybe some princelings who are favourites of the Empress.
All the figures here are from Essex Miniatures.
Now, scoring, let's see:
36 foot @ 2 points = 72
2 hand-painted flags @ 1 point = 2
8 mounted @ 4 points = 32
Total = 106
This might be my last post of the Challenge. My father passed away on Friday and I may be otherwise occupied over the next few weeks and not be able to complete anything. Certainly nothing major, but possibly some small groups of 28mm figures just to distract myself.
MilesR: Very sorry to hear about your Father's passing. I know I speak for all of your fellow Challengers when I express my deep condolences in this difficult time. Your mini's are superb, as usual, but that's not really the important thing now.
