Petrovsk regiment – converting Warlord plastics for the 1808 campaign

These are some figures from Warlord Games’ plastic Russian Napoleonic Line Infantry 1809–1814 set. As Warlord advertise, they are sculpted with the 1809 style uniform. I am painting my Russians to fit the 1808 campaign in Russia. So can the Warlord plastics be used for this campaign? Yes and no. At the time of theContinue reading “Petrovsk regiment – converting Warlord plastics for the 1808 campaign”

Some more Germans

These are a few more additions to my slowly growing Kursk project. The figures are slightly modified Warlord and Perry miniatures.

Most of them were made by Warlord Games, with a few being Gorgon Studios (with greatcoats and leather jackets).

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”
