Italeri 6006 Russian Grenadiers Part 1

In my previous post I told you that I have to blame someone for painting this figures. But I mean it in a good way! In fact I had one of these on the painting desk for a very long time. Now she, yes it is a she, pushed me to paint him. As I need four figures for a stand I took three others out of the box and painted them.
 
 
Who is this she? Well it's Tamsin as the "Wargaming Girl" from the Rejects. It was in this post at her blog that she pushed me: here! Just have a look at the comments and you see what I mean. But I have to thank her, now the first ones are painted, I have the next four on the table. Thanks Tamsin!
 
 




 
 
 
I also have to thank her for something else. Some time ago she did a giveaway for her 4th blogiversary and 500K hits. I was so Lucky to win one of the prices of the drawing wich can be seen here! I won a very nice collection of 15 mm pirates. Now I have to find out what the best way is to paint 15 mm figures!
 
I borrowed this picture from Tamsin her blog!
Thank you very much for the figures Tamsin!
 
Well that's it for now. Now I'm going back to the painting table! There are some more figures asking for some paint!
 
 
Welcome to my blog!!!!!

    1. Thanks Remco! A man has to do something when he is recovering! There isn't much else to do! I still have some 6 mm lying around here. I might give them another go later on this year!

  9. Nice work Peter, the only way to paint 15mm figures is...with a brush, nice and easy. It is not that different from the true and only scale my friend ;-)

  12. Yes Peter,you seem to have a very active paint brush again,which is great for everyone gets to see lots of your figures marching off your painting table. As for painting smaller figures just use a bigger brush,and they will be finished very quickly indeed.
    Nice work on all those classic marching fellows. BB
