Fifty Shades of Greenish Grey

Here is my first unit of Red infantry for the Russian Civil War. I've worked out the basing for them, so I can show a few close-up pictures.
The figures are from Peter Pig's excellent range, and they're good fun to paint up. With the drab uniforms, you could finish them off quickly with a really basic paint job, but they also reward a bit more time and effort.
Here's the banner. It's a design I've printed from the internet then painted over. The star is a little wonky - I've since discovered a better technique that let's me get those kinds of details more precise. But you'll have to wait for the next unit to see the results!
If you've been viewing the blog for a little while, you'll have noticed the backgrounds for my photos have been all over the shop. I was getting a bit sick of this, so thought I should get a better quality set up. Here it is...
A copy-paper box, with white paper sticky-taped to the insides. It's not perfect but it does alright, as the above photos show.
