A Ruskie Officer

Hello everyone!

Another quick update. I saw this chap sitting on my workbench and thought I'd finish him up real quick. Besides, my Russians were feeling neglected. I present to you Lieutenant Colonel Khristian Ditterix III, commander of the 7th Battery Company (click on the pictures for bigger versions):

LTC Ditterix is an AB figure. As you can see, he is the only figure on the base. I'm planning on having battery commanders be on their own bases for all of my artillery units of all nationalities. This is so the battery commander will always be with their unit, either with the deployed gun stands or with the moving battery stand.

That's all ofr tonight. Thanks for looking!

More Frenchmen

Hello everyone!

I finally found some free time to dust off my paints and brushes for the first time in a long time. I decided to finish up a stand I started a long time ago.

Here I present Colonel Chabert, commander of the 1ere Demi-Brigade, 2e Brigade, 2e Division, IX Corps:


All are AB figures. Remember to click on the pictures for larger versions!

I finished up the ADC back in July, but I hadn't found time to finish up the good colonel and his adoring fan until today. Oh well: it's another stand done and finally some French officers to lead the 8th Line's Demi-Brigade.

That's it for now... I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Next will probably be more Russians, but I've also lined up my American Infantry (which need priming) so look forward to them soon as well.

Thanks for looking!
