Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the first battalion of the Galitz regiment of foot. All models are Foundry.
I decided to base my Russian regiments using the General de Brigade ruleset so I have based them in 8s. Actually I was so excited about painting these that I ordered some custom made bases from Litko. Unfortunately I was not wise enough to realise the most obvious thing; that once you place 8 metal models on a 1.8mm thick piece of wood and you add PVA glue you will probably get a base that will slightly warp around the edges...
I had to think of something fast since I had ordered a pack of 50 bases and after a lot careful thinking I came up with this:
Unfortunately I had to do the same thing with models that I had already painted and based so it got a bit ugly :(
Hopefully this will teach me a lesson when I order custom made bases from them in the future...
One last thing I did was to order some test figures from Front Rank and I have to say that the rest of my Russians will be from them and not from Foundry! The Front Rank castings are so clean and the detail so clear on the models!
So here is the appropriate casualty figure (front rank) for the Galitz regiment:
I hope you like them! flags were as always from GMB designs. Total of 24 models
