My plan to field the "occasional" Russian unit for the NWF, perhaps, requires an amendment. After painting the first Russian battalion (see it here), I felt the urge to paint another. I suppose, to paraphrase an old American potato chip commercial, "No one can paint just one!"
That is the situation in which I find myself.
Off the painting desk is a battalion of Russian infantry of 22 foot and one mounted officer. Figures are from Wargames Foundry's excellent Crimean War range.
Getting back to the original goal of fielding a small force for use in some of Kevin's NWF games, my plan is to build a Russian expeditionary force for use during the period termed as "The Great Game" between Britain and Russia. While several British and British-backed native battalions have crossed my painting desk, this Russian Expeditionary Force (REF) will comprise both Russian and native contingents. Perhaps some Indian and Afghan irregular troops will show up to support the Russians? Maybe Indian and Afghan regulars too? Many possibilities to consider.
