Visiting Little Wars in Stockholm this weekend really got me and my friends fired up on both playing the excellent Pikemans Lament (or Eagle Rampant, see Wargames Illustrated April 2016 issue) AND on getting the armies for it, that is Russians and Fins & Swedes.
I had had a slowly growing Russian army for the Napoleonic era in my cupboard for a few years and had so far painted only few of them for Retreat from Moscow 1812 games. So off I went to rummage my dash and the pile of lead and plastic came up quite impressive...
Tonite I then went on to kitbash different Napoleonic miniatures to create plastic troopers for 1808 Finns... see the pics on how it turned out!
We're going to play the LOTR scenario with Tom and Barrow Wights soon, so I finally got the reason to paint these quite old Mithril Miniatures. I have them as Citadel versions too, but decided to go with these.
