R3 Russian Infantry in Helmet FiringThis is the last model in the Russian infantry range in the Douglas Miniatures series to be added to my collection. The figure is a line infantry soldier in greatcoat, wearing a helmet and in the firing position. I have decided to paint this unit in the fawn colour, rather than grey, that seems to have been used more frequently by the Russian forces in the Crimea. I have done this just to break up the sea of grey in my Russian army.
This unit marks a milestone for me as I have painted all of the bare metal in my Crimean war figure store. That said another order is with Old John, so the brushes will not be dry for long.
