Here is a small addition to my 1808 Russians.
These are some figures from Warlord Games’ plastic Russian Napoleonic Line Infantry 1809–1814 set. As Warlord advertise, they are sculpted with the 1809 style uniform. I am painting my Russians to fit the 1808 campaign in Russia. So can the Warlord plastics be used for this campaign? Yes and no. At the time of theContinue reading “Petrovsk regiment – converting Warlord plastics for the 1808 campaign”
Just a few musketeers of the Sevsk regiment. I am working on some more of these, including grenadiers (with their huge busch-plumes!), but havent been able to paint very much lately due to work. I really need to paint 4-5 units worth of Russian infantry as soon as possible, so am slightly depressed that thingsContinue reading “Sevsk regiment 1808”
These are Russian generals by Warlord Games. They are very nice figures, just a shame they didnt bother to sculpt different horses – there are various head and arm options, but only one horse to choose from. As far as I know these are compatible with both the 1808-1809 and 1812 campaigns, or even later.
These are some Russian dragoons for 1812 and post-1812 campaigns which I painted a few years back. I think they are painted as the Kargopol dragoons.
Actually, they are more like 1805 Russians, but this uniform version is very nice. And they are great sculpts by Paul Hicks, available from Brigade Games (formerly they were sold by Victrix). I have painted them as the Velikiye Luki regt. but the facing colors on the Asov regt. are very close (“straw” instead ofContinue reading “1808 Russians”
I am painting these Russian jägers for the war in Finland of 1808. It was only after having ordered many and painted some of them that I understood that the figures are not perfectly ideal for that campaign. By 1808, it had been decreed that the waist belt be worn over the shoulder rather thanContinue reading “Russian jägers 1805”
I am slightly unsure about the uniform on this figure, please let me know if you notice any inaccuracies. This certainly is a lovely figure by Perry, although some details are very small so that it was a bit tricky to paint. This will work both as a leader for my Mariupol hussars and asContinue reading “Russian hussar officer”
