I finally got around to basing the second company of the Izhevsk rifle battalion. Just like the 1st company the troopers are all from Minifigs and the officer is from Copplestone castings. I also completed another officer in a more flamboyant white uniform. Just like the idea of him standing out from the rest.
I do have 2 spare figures remaining, the idea being I will use these for one of the more colourful officer units. I think I might try a couple of packs from the Empress range to bring them up to 10 figures. Hopefully they bring the range to the York show. In the meantime I have the HMG and artillery undercoated and hope to make a start on them in the coming days.
How many figures are in this collection now, Neil?
Nicely done I do love copplestone, wish he would do a few more 🤔
Erm a few hundred I think or too many according to the wife and not quite enough avcording to me
Cheers Matt, so do I
Great work, agree with both you and Matt re Mark Copplestone....but his interests seem to lie elsewhere, unfortunately. The last image is archetypal White Tsarist officer style....put him up against the all!! 😄
Cheers Keith, at least he will draw attention on the battlefield. It's a shame the Copplestone range hasn't been expanded in a long time
Great work again!
