RP No 75 RJW Russian Artillery





The last of the catch up posts from the Analouge Painting Challenge you'll all be pleased to here, Fran!!
These were posted in the final minutes of the Challenge giving me 432 points to add to my winning total of 4940!
I was once again accused of sandbagging by Curt (now a Honorary Reject, Canadian Chapter). and being a cheeky git, which of course are both absolutely correct!
In this post are 24 batteries of Russian artillery for the Russo-Japanese War, why Postie wanted this much is a mystery to me and him too probably???
There are 12 batteries made by Old Glory and another 12 by Irregular minis, they all still need a splash of ink, but Postie won't here of it?????
Have a great weekend, I will I'm stuck at work on nights painting and trying to fit a little bit of work in on the side!!

  23. I say thats one hells of a lot of guns, just how big is the army?

  24. Presumably Postie now has enough figures for both sides to fight the entire war on a 1 to 1 scale??

    So when are these guys going to see their guns in action??

  28. very nice. quantity is what makes it so awsome. a little mud and grime should bring that quality up as well

    ReplyDelete
  29. This will truly make a Grand Battery! I wouldn't march in front of them, that's for sure!
