It has however thrown up some dilemmas for me too.
First things first though. When researching what cavalry I would do next I realised the siberian cossacks I had were wrong. The source I had used gave them with a yellow band and yellow crown to the caps. The crown should be blue. So nothing for it but a repaint. Here they are mounted.
I then came to the cavalry. With a unit of 10 red capped cossacks I decided 6 more from Leonid would be ideal. Now these cavalry are just lovely, but I am not convinced they fit with Copplestone. Theres the dilemma. Do I leave like this or get two more from Russia and use the Copplestone ones as the start of a further unit. I cant decide.
As dilemmas go its hardly life threatening but I do need to decide. I am also seriously considering my next unit once the infantry are painted. I like the idea of a unit in the Caucasian Native Cherkesska coat. I like the idea of different coloured coats and hats with some of the larger fur hats worn in the savage division. I have the first two of these from Leonid the rest may have to be head swaps or greenstuff minor conversions on Copplestone Kuban Cossacks. Food for thought.
Thats it for now. Thanks for reading.
