More Crimean Russians, now with helmets

 The endless hordes of Russians continue. These are 28mm Perry figures from Foundry.

There were 13 figures in this unit and the pose is "defending". I think they turned out okay (followed examples on Foundry site). I wish the helmets had been just a touch darker. 

I also did a unit of command bases.

Up next: More Russians! I didn't find anything at the model railway sale on last weekend so I'm back to grinding through my to-paint pile.

28mm Crimean Russians

I'm grinding my way through a huge lot of 28mm Crimean Russians that I received last fall.

These are Perry sculpts and have lots of character. I used the pictures on the Foundry website as the painting guide.

I'd say these fellows could also be used in colonial adventures from the 1850s into the 1930s.

Up next: More Russians for Crimea!

Rebased 28mm pulp-era Cobra

I have several things on the painting table, but nothing ready to show this week (too many distractions as the gardening and kayaking seasons come to a close). One thing I did finish this week was rebasing my pulp-era Cobra troops.

There are eight more troopers I didn't take a snap of. All are Pulp Figures except the Cobra Commander in the middle (whom I bought from Crooked Dice miniatures). 

Up next: Looking forward to the model train swap meet at the end of the month to secure some autumn projects. Also working on a bunch of Crimean Russians (so many Russians...).

For Sale: Painted Star Wars Legion Rebel Army

I have for sale a painted Rebel army for Star Wars Legion. The army includes the cards and counters but no dice. I'd like $250, which is less than the cost of the unpainted minis.

There are five seven-man foot units, two Lukes, and three AT-RT walkers. The guns on the walkers swivel (magnet mounts) and there are three extra guns if you want to customize the weaponry.

From a pet- and smoke-free home. Would not consider parting this out. Shipping is extra at cost. offers to .
