A divisional command stand for the Austro Hungarians as well. These figures all come from the HaT AH Support Weapons box.
The Russians needed a second divisional command stand, and a Corps command stand.
|I decided to use the higher echelon uniform colours: green tunic, and blue trousers. Why? It might be appropriate, and I was getting bored painting khaki.|

I also needed to provide a little more support for later war games (although the availability of trench mortars for the Russians was severely limited despite the theoretical TOEs). All of the Russian figures here came from the HaT Russian support weapons box.
The common thread here is still 'finishing' existing projects. The figures for these stands have sat in boxes for quite some time. There's more on the painting table as I type.
Why the flurry of activity? Several reasons really. It's term break. I'm injured (having pinched a femoral nerve) and so unable to train for dancing. Both of these mean that I have more time right now. Finally, with the impending demolition of house and games room prior to rebuild, I'm sorting, and where there are boxes of figures or vehicles that I could paint in order to get rid of the boxes, that's what I'm trying to do.
It also means that I end up buying more figures as I realise I just need a few more of these or one more of those, but.. well, you know how it is.
