This week I managed to complete two units for my early Napoleonic Russian project. This was supposed to only be a small (?) project to refight the Russo-Swedish War 1808-1809. Like the Lambton Worm in local folklore it has grown and grown an awful size, although I doubt even all my the Russians could encircle Penshaw Hill(quite).
|Next, is the second battalion of the St. Petersburg Grenadiers, ready to join the first battalion currently in barracks under my table.
|The 1st and 2nd battalions together.
All the figures with perhaps two exceptions are old Casting Room Miniatures. There are a couple of Elite Miniatures officers in there somewhere. The flags are slightly oversized which I like, and are from the exceptionally good Maverick Models. I can’t recall where the cannon are from as they were salvaged from the box of doom.
No game this weekend, but I really hope to get at least one decent-sized battle in over the Christmas holidays.
