Red Army Infantry : Russian Civil War

Seems ages since I completed any painted units, I have been a bit of a butterfly but there are several things I am working on. However, I have managed to complete these Russian Red Infantry.


They are all Copplestone figures, in their characteristic Budenovka hats. Depending on the scenario they will play as elites or normal revolutionary infantry. I now need to get one or two special figures sorted out as I am looking to have special rules for standards etc.....

  2. Splendid looking toys Matt...
    One of my friends owns a Budenovka hat... his is a lot taller than you would expect.
    I think on a tall young socialist warrior it would look very impressive...
    Sadly on a grumpy old bloke it’s more like .... welcome to Trampsville... :-)

    All the best. Aly

    1. I’ve read up a bit about the hat and apparently they weren’t used very long and were replaced but were so characteristic they have endured 👍
