Activity at the painting desk returns briefly to push out a 23-figure battalion of Russian infantry for the 25mm Great Game project. While the project is yet to see action in anger, Russian and vassal forces will be in good position when called up.
Figures are Wargames Foundry from the excellent 25mm Crimean War range. As mentioned many times before, these Foundry Russians are terrific sculpts and the greatcoats make painting and readying for battle a snap. The battalion seen here is the last of the Foundry Russian lead in The Lead Pile and march out in a mix of helmet and forage cap. Four such battalions can now be mustered for action.
Enough figures for only one more unit remain to complete before plans of project expansion. In The Lead Pile are 23 figures to field one more Russian infantry battalion. The figures this time are a test batch from Great War Miniatures. At first glance, the Great War look a bit more chunky than Foundry but should look fine on the gaming table.
