Let's not call this a new project, but rather an addendum to the current project. I normally like to collect both sides for a time period, but the recent forays into SYW gaming inspired me to work on an alternative force to take on Jon's 18mm Prussians.
As such, allow me to introduce the Butyrskiy Infantry regiment. The first in a planned Corps of Russians for the 18mm SYW project. I joined the "Old Glory Army" this year as I planned to purchase a healthy amount of their 10mm SYW and 28mm Ancients. I opted to also get some 18mm Blue Moon figures to see if the Russian project would appeal to me.
Turns out the figures are fairly easy to paint and look good enough masse.
I based them on the same 120mm x 30mm Jon did for his regiments, but opted to drop a couple of figures as the firing position obscures too much detail if you pack the figures in too tight. The flags were taken from the Kronoskaf site
