Russian Division HQ

While casting around for suitable figures to kit out a WW1-era Russian HQ I found this interesting set from Trumpeter.  OK, so they're 1/35 scale rather then 1/32 but who's counting?  More important is the fact that most are wearing the pointy 'Budenovka' hat which became common apparel in the Red Army during the Civil War.  So completely wrong for 1914 then.  But I rather like them.

Nice find Tim, are they kit figures and are there other sets?
Best wishes Brian

The figures are kits - but I managed! There is also a useful looking gun crew set which I'm tempted by: http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/TU00427

They look rather good Tim, rather fond of the pointy hat myself, brings to mind the Russo Finnish War for me.

Cheers,

Pete.

Great looking figures- they'll take FLW into the 20s and beyond...

I like!

The new scheme works well with them.

It's certainly a distinctive item of headwear!

I thought you had some sort of allergy to figures in this scale......

Very impressive. Lovely posses...

To be honest I have found that at the lower (size) end of 54mm figures can look more like 1/35 anyway!

Very smart and very nicely painted! I'm jealous.

I have been known to take far worse liberties with scales!
