15mm White Russian Civil War Cossacks

yes a slight change of pace, but as they are for Matt and NOT myself do not worry they are not a new project!

The figures are Peter Pig 15mm Russian Civil War White Cossacks. There are 20 mounted figures in all, 2 to a base. Matt wanted this very simple base effect to match in with those he already had.  (I was lent a sample base to colour match , not shown). The colour match is not perfesct as I have no idea what paint the guy was using and Matt got the originals from eBay. While not perfect, the colours are CLOSE!

I was also asked to put a blue (and NOT red stripe on the trousers which ready was a finishing touch. Matt has already seen these photos and is happy with the result.

I am also happy with the result. I think he plans to use them with the Peter Pig "Square bashing" Rules. Which are an OK set of WW1 Battalion size set of rules. So if I ever get a game with these I will let you know.

A quick post on Saturday as I am at a show all day Sunday. So most likely just a single figure. Several are close to compleation, but I am not rushing so it will most likely be a Wild West figure but at this stage I just cannot say, it will all depend on my mood tonight and Saturday morning.

Best Wishes Clint

    1. Thanks Andy. I know many wargamers who hate using cavalry on the table yet at the same time do love the way they look!

  2. All painted to your usual high standard, Clint. I do, however, wonder what Matt would do if he didn't have you to paint his figures for him?

    1. Thank you Bryan. Quite simply Matt would pay someone else to paint figures for him. He has in the past and no doubt will in the future.

  4. Must admit I never know what to do with cav except get them killed off, just a footslogger at heart. Pitty Matts not doing them in 20mm as I know a great range :)

    1. THanks Tim. Until I started painting these I did not know that Matt was doing RCW at all.

      As for 20mm If you said 28mm I think he might be interested as I know that is his favourite scale for wargames.

  8. My great-grandfather was an officer in the Kuban Cossacks around this period. We've no idea what happened to him, though...

    1. Thank you C6. I am afraid I just paint them I know nothing about the unit or its history. Good to know of a family connection though I am sure I would find that very interesting
