Olga & partisans with carbines

I've been painting a mob of Russian Civil War partisans this weekend, but unfortunately I've temporarily run out of bases - so only these are finished.  Here is Olga (with a Mauser C96 pistol), leading 3 other partisans with carbines (most likely Mosin–Nagant variants).  Olga is an Artizan Designs figure, whilst the others are from Copplestone Castings.

I really like all these sculpts, but my favourites are the kneeling partisan & Olga - very dynamic poses, plus the greatcoat & fleece jacket look brilliant.

These partisans can be used for 'Reds' or 'Whites' or any other faction.  I may paint-up a banner bearer with a Bolshevik flag at some point to help capture the 'Red Guard' theme though.  
 "К победе, товарищи!"


  1. I can see why you love these sculpts, so characterful and you have done a great job on them.
