Been very productive the last week or so getting most of the Crimean figures I'd got cleaned up painted . Here is the Russian Infantry Regiment Azov , the problem with Russian Infantry is that they all look the same .
They have painted up very quickly , I gave them a good coat of high gloss yacht varnish to seal the paint so it won't flake then a coat of matt varnish - which isn't truly matt (are they ever ?) but gives a pleasing satin finish .
Whilst I'm on a roll I've decided to do some Turkish Bashi- Bazouks to give the Turkish contingent a bit of cavalry , they are again Strelets and cleaned up fairly well , they are fixed to their horses using dress pins . Next up 42nd Highlanders .
