St Petersburg Grenadiers

This is the 1st battalion of the St Petersburg Grenadiers.  I chose to do them with their 1805 facings; turquoise collars and cuffs, and raspberry shoulder straps is a nice combination. The 2nd battalion together with a full battery (6 guns and crews) of 6pdr foot artillery are within sight of the finishing line. 

In other news, my deep dive into the garden shed of doom is a bag of mainly Russian Crimean War limbers and teams, a dozen of them! I remember trawling bring and buys, eBay and the like a few years ago for cheap limbers and must have been so successful that I promptly forgot all about them! I’d better get them done as they can be used for Crimean and Napoleonic Russians I reckon.

The Grenadiers are Casting Room Miniatures and the flags are from Maverick Models. I’m not 100 percent happy with them so once the other two battalions are done I shall see what I can do with them.


  1. Lovely additions there Colin! Grand find in the SofD too, especially given the price Foundry charge now for them!

  2. Impressive and beautiful grenadiers!

  3. I’m not sure I really like the look of them even if I did paint them!
