Here are some images of my recently completed SYW Russian Army. I began this project a few years ago and decided this year to finish enough units for a decent sized wargames army.

Here are some posts from my first efforts.

I think the red, summer uniforms of the infantry are quite attractive. Now I just need to paint Prussians to fight them…

Those are gorgeous! I like the way that the Foundry Russians look with all of the different parts and pieces brought together in this manner.

Superb! You have an excellent army there!

Thanks for the comments. Much appreciated.

The Foundry SYW Russians have a lot of character packs and command options to make your army quite interesting to look at.

Wow! Very impressive and a very beautiful paint job.

Thanks!

@Tirailleur – I started back in 2012 but the rest took me about 6 months.

This is as good as it gets! Amazing work.

Bandolier,

14 battalions, 8 cavalry units, plus, plus, …
You are painting like a machine gun!
How many hours per week should had I ask?

Anyway, stunning, would like to be so fast….

"Grand Bravo!"

Great work.

On the Cuirassiers did you paint the belts the same color as their coats? I am currently working on some myself and was not sure if the leather belts should be the same color as the coat or slightly lighter.

von Winterfeldt01 May 2017 10:08 p.m. PST

amazing army, outstanding, excellent colour control

Ramming02 May 2017 10:01 a.m. PST

Beautifully done, why can't we get wargamers to run the country ?

Ghecko07 May 2017 12:38 p.m. PST

Magnificent.

Are you going to game with them?

18th Century Guy Supporting Member of TMP10 May 2017 4:58 p.m. PST

Great stuff. I love the brightness of the colors. It will really liven up the gaming table.

Navy Fower Wun Seven16 May 2017 12:44 p.m. PST

Wow! Just amazing to see the entire collection. My particular fave is your superb rendition of the Horse Grenadiers, absolutely stunning!

I was just browsing the SYW forums and only now noticed this post had been revived. Thanks again for the comments.
My philosophy for painting wargames soldiers is to make them bright and easy to spot on the table.

Olaf 03 – The belts are pure white to contrast with the off-white coats. I had to experiment with some colours before I settled on that look.

reeves lk – I'm getting close to putting on a decent game with them. I only have a few completed Prussian units to oppose them. These comments may inspire me to paint more grin

Navy 417 – They are still my favourites too!

Cheers
Mick

Mick,

Thank you for the response. I was leaning that way too regarding the belt color.

Again beautiful army. The Russians are definitely my favorite army for the SYW, very colorful!
