Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Zvezda Set 8049 Russian Infantry of Peter the Great

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all well.

Having to cope with Greece's warm weather, I came up with the ida of cooling myself by painting some figures for the Great Northern War. Some friends from the Wargames Club I'm in, suggested that we could use Volley and Bayonet rules (by F. Chadwick) for playing the battle of Poltava (among other battles of the war I suppose, but, that was the original plan).

I got some boxes of Zvezda's excellent figures (Russian Infantry of Peter the Great), and came up with this:

I hope you like them (the figures, not the banner - I have to learn how to implement them on poles).

Have a good Monday night everyone! 


  1. Curious, how many boxes did it take to get 8 men marching in the same pose?
    The figures look very smart! Nice color choice for the green.

  2. Beautiful work, love the colors!

  3. Very very nice Thanos! Really like the green coats!

  4. Excellent painting of my infantry, Thanos! ;-) Job well done!
