In between painting units of cossacks I have been working on the Russian Napoleonic infantry. My last order contained a box of these that allowed me to complete another two and a half battalions, and all of the command figures for the musketeer battalions.
The remaining four boxes of figures that are required to complete the twelve battalions that I intend to paint for this army will not be arriving until at least August. Unlike previous years, where I have been a little undisciplined in my purchases, this year is to a strict schedule...a schedule that sees the next four months completely dedicated to the British, French and Russian Crimean armies.
Here they are. First is the whole of the first infantry brigade, the Smolensk and Odessa regiments, in line of battalion columns.
These next three shots are all five battalions formed in column of divisions.
I have always liked the Russian Napoleonic army so it is nice to have some of them back in my collection.
The rest of the week will see a return to the cossacks.
