I hate joining the party late! Looking at these links I see that I have painted many of my WWI figures incorrectly! Back to the painting table...

Thanks for sharing  :)
I paint badly... and rarely

Hi Muckypup. I'm Tank Girl's understudy. This may help:


I have seen depictions that are much browner than this, but I don't think you can go very wrong painting them a faded light green.


Russian troops saw action fighting against all the major Central Powers countries: Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria.
Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

Just found out a little more about its a easy `to Google` any way russian gernades were the same shape as german ones smaller though, russian morters were again mounted on a wheeled carrage scaled against soldiers not difficult to model `in action` all in a green paint scheme. I seem to be OK at scratch making stuff. Soon as I figure how to post pics I will.
 I would imagin the russians would sparingly issued grenades. But perhaps the supply was ok,  be interesting to find out more about Russ/Turk battles  8)

I admit I'm a bit sketchy on the details myself, it is a much-overlooked campaign.

This page might start you off with an overview of what transpired:
