Re: Friday everywhere

Winter war Finns look great but I think the earlier sets of Finns and Russians will need to be brought up to today's standard.

Re: Friday everywhere

Hi Strelets,

Fantastic Russian Genadiers/Infantry figures just a couple of observations in the pursuit of perfection, I don't believe they carried bread bags it would be better if these were removed, the covered shako would have been a rarity and worn with winter greatcoats if at all so no more of these please.

The quality of sculpting recently is top class I particularly like the standard bearer he has long tails of an officers coat I really hope this is correct because he will look superb painted.

Re: Friday everywhere

Dear Brian,

A contrary view, if I may. I like them with the bread bags, as illustrated in the painting of grenadiers at rest by Alexander Averyanov (shown amongst his paintings here https://www.wallpaperflare.com/search?wallpaper=Averyanov+Alexander).

Of course, paintings are not evidence, but they look good!

I simply don't have enough Russian infantry. This looks like changing.

AB Russians have bread bags in 18mm, so if good enough for Mr Barton, then good enough for me

I just interviewed the soldier in question and he said sorry, he was hungry. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
