Last of the SYW Russians

Well it had to happen. Another project complete – this is the second Might and Reason/Maurice army I have done this year. So the last part are another 8 bases of Russian infantry, 4 regular infantry and 4 guard bases.Unlike the previous Guard units I painted, I thought I would add flags to these units. The flags really are impressive and do finish the bases nicely, as you can see below with the close ups. They have the standard guard and commander flags like other units. The basic infantry units are as always based off real regiments – this time the Riazanskiy (the ones with the yellow chevron’s on the flags) and Muromskiy regiments.Although I do have a few more figs for another unit of Russian infantry, I have enough painted for a basic M&R army – which is way more than needed for Maurice. So I will use those figures for another project – maybe a 3rd SYW army as a minor power. Maybe as Spain/Portugal or something…We’ll see.

Of course this is not the end of my 6mm painting. I have already started the next one – this involves the Dark ages. So watch this space for pictures of that.

    You have done a great job with these, the flags set ’em off. Button counters would suggest that they are too big, personally too big is just about perfect.
