Russian hussar officer
I am slightly unsure about the uniform on this figure, please let me know if you notice any inaccuracies. This certainly is a lovely figure by Perry, although some details are very small so that it was a bit tricky to paint. This will work both as a leader for my Mariupol hussars and asContinue reading “Russian hussar officer”

So far,Continue reading “Finnish army of 1808”

The metal figures have no jackets on, they are wearing only their shirts. The plastic set is excellent and in itself contains miniatures to create a wholeContinue reading “Speed painting a US infantry platoon”
Germans for the battle of Kursk 1943
This is a first attempt at German panzergrenadiers as they would have appeared at the battle of Kursk in 1943. There are no miniatures available that are perfectly suitable for this period. Most are designed for “late war”, that is 1944-45. Those figures most often have the low boots with gaiters, they have mp44s, panzerfaustsContinue reading “Germans for the battle of Kursk 1943”
