Russians are coming! (Napoleonic wars)
Having been stuck with essentially an infantry brigade or division (depending on the rules) and one regiment of cavalry for ages as I have concentrated on Prussians and Austrians I decided to get some Russians done by Perfect Six and after 4 months break I am starting on a huge basing process. So this is somewhat a work in progress for my Russians.
So here is my rather pathetic Russian force prior to getting some done:
The last thing I added was a grenadier battalion and I painted that quite a while ago now
The first reinforcements arrive:
Guard Kuirassier regiment:
Guard Hussars - I decided to have these in the early uniform as it looks more colourful:
Little Russia Kuirassiers:
One squadron of Moscow Dragoons entering the battlefield ahead of the rest of the regiment:
I am working on a number of Austrian battalions but I think I will do a post on my Austrian army later this week rather than wait as it could be a while and my Austrians are my largest army so far.
Borodino church is in the background and I have done an earlier post on that. The small village with large wooden church are Timecast models and where about the first Russian buildings I painted.
