St Petersburg Grenadiers

I've found that being a parent to a toddler has shifted my priorities so painting has taken a back seat to more important things, like peekaboo.  However, I still get to sneak in a few minutes of painting here and there!

I've finally finished my latest unit of Russian grenadiers:

These are Perry Miniatures plastics, except the officer who is from Brigade Games (originally from the Victrix 1809 Russians).  Flags are from GMB.  I like the way that the soldier in the ferushka is giving the drummer the hairy eyeball - it's like he's wondering, "why is the drummer out of step?"

I've now got three units of grenadiers - enough for a brigade, if I ever find time for a game again!
