I'm continuing to base up the 1:72nd Russian WWII infantry. As you will remember, these were painted for us by our friends in Sri Lanka, Fernando Enterprises, based on the box illustrations.

Horses and horseholders

Last time, I did the two mortar men. This time, we have two horses and two horseholders.

Horse and horseholder

It seems an odd inclusion in this set. Why is someone leading a horse? What would you ever use the models for in a game?

Horse and horseholder

I could have based them together, but I thought basing them individually gave more options on the tabletop.


The horse, oddly enough, does not have a cast-on base. I simply glued the hooves to the base, and hope that stands up to gaming use.


In the photo above, there's something odd above the foreleg. Not sure what the sculptor had in mind there.

Horse and horseholder

The horseholder has a bag and what seems to be a sword? Riding crop?

Horse and horseholder

Big weapon slung on the back, seems larger than the standard rifle.

More to Come!
