Travels with a Rogue

A small piece of the web dedicated to Gen. Mikhail Skobolev (the White General), toy soldiers (any period), history, politics and books circa. 1850-1900.

There was an earlier day in my life when I had plenty of time and no money for my hobby, now I have money for my hobby and not so much time. I never stopped playing with toy soldiers "much to my mothers chagrin" exchanging the sandbox, green armymen and rocks for Donald Featherstone's book Wargames, AWI soldiers from the back of a comic book, dice and rulers. Those early games were great fun and very exciting. Eventually I graduated to more complicated systems, better miniatures, headaches, rule arguments and basically not a lot of fun. I thought about ditching the hobby altogether. I realized recently that I like a good game of toy soldiers. I like the look of toy soldiers and I like the way a simple game plays. I like the trusty d6.

RSM95 Russians

I have found that there are insufficient photos of most of the miniatures I'd like on the web. So for your viewing pleasure here are a few unpainted samples of the RSM line. From left to right; a Russian Musketeer Officer, a Russian Musketeer in March Attack (IMHO the only appropriate infantry pose for SYW figures and RSM has virtually every infantry combatant available in March Attack), a Prussian Mounted General pressed into service as a Russian Infantry Colonel and finally a Standard Bearer ( a generic fellow that works well). The figures are about 28mm tall with very natural proportions and pose. They paint very easily and look quite nice when finished, I fear that to bring out the absolute best in the minis requires a better painter then myself, although at near 50 years old the eyes are starting to weaken! I will post some painted figures tomorrow.
