As part of my preparations for the planned 'Tannenberg1914' Funny Little Wars game, I have decided I need yet more Russians! A rummage in boxes yielded four boxes of HAT Prussian Landwehr in the required 1/32 scale. Although from a different era (but only a century adrift!) many of these chaps are wearing peaked caps and so bear (to my eyes at least) a passing resemblance to 1914 Russians. Did I mention they were cheap? Their shako-wearing chums were slung back in their boxes to await future inspiration....
I also discovered a couple of previously unemployed Armies in Plastic Russian officers who now each have a regiment to command!
The rather greasy blue plastic was cleaned up and the figures stuck on my usual 30x40mm MDF bases before being treated to a brushed on coat of PVA.
Next it's out with the green paint.
