I’ve finished another unit for my Napoleonic Russians, a battalion of the Velikij-Lukiska Musketeer Regiment. I’ve already completed their grenadiers, and am well on towards finishing the next battalion of the regiment this week.
As before these are old Casting Room Miniatures, the flags being from the excellent Maverick Models Here.
Once this regiment is done and I get my finger out and paint a dragoon regiment (perhaps the thought of 30 figures is the reason?) I’ll be able to pit them against my little Swedish army for their baptism of fire.
As usual these photos make all the mistakes very visible but at the moment this is the best I can manage. They’ll look impressive en masse though I am certain.
I’ve got quite a few other bits almost ready to go off to barracks that’s been lying (cluttering) my painting desk for months; mainly Austro Prussian and Franco Prussian War units, of which more anon. (They are the perfect displacement activity to avoid painting Russian cavalry).
