RCW - Bolcheviks (1918 - 1920)
« on: October 31, 2019, 04:44:38 PM »
Hi...  :)

This is my first post on this terrific forum...

I am preparing a bolchevik army (100% Peter Pig) in order to play a RCW Square Bashing campaign with Pierre "Camulogene" in our local club (in Brittany)...

So here are some few pics of my first 7 regiments of regular troops...

I enjoyed painting these figures very much as the sculpting is superb, with many different attitudes !!  :)

I still have a lot of work to do. Next to come will be the command figures...

 ;)

Welcome to the forum Anatoli. Your RCW armies look superb. I have played a good few games of RCW Square Bashing and also some Russo-Polish War. Very exciting games which gave me an opportunity to win against someone I rarely beat. He hasnít played Square Bashing for a while, but there is another Russophile in the club who is looking to build a Red Army to take on my Whites.

Lovely figures, Anatoli!

Maybe you can share some tips here on your painting technique?

Thank you for your welcoming...  ;)

I use a Brown primer (Citadel or Army painter) and mainly PA or Vallejo products (except for yellow and red colors : I prefer Citadel ones)  ; then for the basing, I always add a little bit of black paint on every basing colors (except for flesh).

After having based my figures, I use 3 different Citadel inks for :
- flesh (Reikland flesh shade),
- uniforms (Seraphim sepia),
- weapons (nuln oil).

I then apply the basic color, without the black to lighten the colors.

I finish with a lot of linings (caps, vests) to highlight the figure...  :)

I like very much this period of History and am glad there are people playing it on this forum... Do you have photos of your whites, Leman ?  ;)

The car is something of a stunner.

- 2 regular regiments ;
- 3 machine guns ;
- 4 guns (artillery) ;
- a few other things...  :)

Yes indeed. The command base is very impressive and I am looking forward to seeing how the other units turn out.
