Today's posting shows that fielding one more battalion was possible. Off the painting desk is a 23 figure battalion of Russian line infantry in greatcoat. Figures are from
Figures are well sculpted and robustly cast in a soft metal. An issue with Foundry's Russian infantry in march attack is that a few figures almost always arrive sans bayonets. No broken bayonets with these lads. Some bayonets were bent and twisted but the soft metal allowed me to put them back into their proper attitude. Really nice figures. Marching in rolled greatcoat is a nice touch.
In The Lead Pile, only a few odds and ends remain from my Great Game project. Nothing in sufficient numbers to field another unit whether it be foot, horse, or gun.
For now, I guess I will call the project "game ready" with nothing pressing to field. Of course, a game on the schedule is often enough incentive to order a few more figures and strike while the motivational iron is hot.
