Now I am only planning two of these, brigaded with two battalions of Foot Cossacks, my main focus remaining on the Swedes, Saxons and Poles.
These are all Ebor miniatures and very nice figures, they are available to buy but Nick hasn't got them on his web site yet. Ebor only do a firing line but I think this is ideal for the Russians who much preferred to try and overcome the Swedes with fire power.
The Regiment I chose is the Siberski Regiment, nothing scientific here, I wanted a green faced red unit and as the uniforms and flags of the Russians at this period are not that well known I was happy to go with a unit identified as Green Faced red in two sources and where a flag was available specifically for them from Reiver Castings.
The last two shots illustrate again the virtual three ranks and how this works on the deep bases.
I also have my third unit of Saxon foot finished and will share a post with you by the weekend with these. Sat with the basing department I also have a unit of foot Cossacks, Mounted Cossacks, Swedish foot guards, Saxon, Swedish and Cossack Generals and Saxon Field gun. Meanwhile on the workbench I have made a little start on a Swedish Tremanning battalion in Grey faced blue.
All coming along nicely.
