Soum Hussars 1812

These are 15mm Old Glory Russian Soum Hussars. Again I'm pretty happy with the way they came out. These figures were sculpted with overalls on. Which means I should have painted the pants grey. But these are my figures and I wanted them in their red pants.

St. Petersburg Grenadiers

These are 15mm Minifigs that I picked up on ebay over 5 years ago. They were thickly primed in white. So thick that you couldn't see any detail of the sculpts. I originally started painting over the white primer when I purchased them. It looked horrible to me. So I put them away in a cabinet never to be seen again.

I was stripping paint off earlier painted figures and came across these guys again. So into the simply green they went.

I'm glad I did. I think they came out great. They are the St. Petersburg Grenadiers of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Grenadier Division of Third Corp.

Minifigs Russian Artillery regunned

I bought some Blue Moon 10 lb Unicorns to replace the guns of my Minifigs. They are more in proportion to my Old Glory Guns.

Cold Wars 2017

I just got back from Lancaster PA. This was my first time at this fall event. It was bigger then I was expecting. I should have taken some time to play a game. But I wanted to see a little of each game going on. The game I liked watching the most, was the Too Fat Lardies "Chain of Command ". This game reminded me of our house rules when I was a kid playing soldiers with our Air fix men.
I have some pictures of some games I saw, some old Air fix that was for sale and my loot.

BOKI General Mikhail Kutuzou

This a Boki 15mm Kutuzou figure. The figure is a very nice sculpt. I also have the AB sculpt that I painted before 2009. It is apparent  that my painting ability has gotten much better. But besides that I like the new sculpt by Boki better. Of course the AB figure was sculpted a long time ago.

Minifigs Russian Artillery

These are pre 1812 Russian Artillery. I really like these figures from Minifigs. They are true 15mm. Next to Old Glory figures they look fine. Since most of my figures are Old Glory and Blue Moon they will look good. The guns are way too small. I will have to swap them out. The difference in size between the Old Glory guns and the Minifigs guns will bother me.
The AB figures are large 18mm and really look odd next to the Minifigs.
