After a marathon painting session on Thursday night I've managed to finish painting the last few Russian infantry figures that I need for Montmirail. I've just finished highlighting the flock and grass tufts and so I give you the 10th Infantry Division:
I didn't have quite enough infantry strips to complete the last base, so rather than buying another pack I used some of the skirmishing figures that I had spare and created a unit in firing line. I've also started to add a couple of casualty figures to the bases, especially the firing line:
Now that I've completed all the infantry I can really see the attraction of 6mm, the figures look really impressive en masse and it's only taken me two months to complete them. I'm hoping to get the artillery, cavalry and command bases completed between Christmas and the Vapnartak show in York on the 2nd February. This seems achievable given how quickly I've painted up the infantry.
Comments and suggestions are welcome as always.
I've listed out the paints I used on the infantry figures in case anyone is interested.
