I have however kept up the painting and decided for the impending new year I need to light a fire under one of those projects which has been waiting to get started, the Russian Civil War. I picked up the desire to game the period ages ago at the British Library and picked up a small force of White Russians from fellow blogger Phil 😀 thanks Phil.
The new year hasn’t improved my photos but first up a unit of classic White Russian infantry one of the colourful units from Southern Russian theatre.
A second unit of slightly more bedraggled White Russian infantry, their uniforms mean they have probabaly walked a long way
Lastly a maxim machine gun.
So three units, I have a commander, some cavalry and a artillery piece to paint as well giving six units (if we use bolt action) for the force, I will then be buying some more infantry and some ‘Reds’ to fight them against. Of course the benefit is I have a number of vehicles, trucks and so on which can be used immediately and terrain is already good to go.
I also spend a couple of days over the holiday converting one of the basic mdf buildings I have into something for the ACW, if you are interested there are pictures of the other conversions on the blog
Thanks as always for reading hopefully I will continue to get some hobby time and get some battles in soon in 2019 🙂
All good stuff. I hope your wife feels better soon.ReplyDelete
