Russian Grenadiers (1813)
"Russian Month" is going so well, that I now have a significant backlog of Russian units to blogged about. A serious backlog !
Lets get rolling then ...
Russian Grenadiers for 1813.
Main differences for the Russian Grenadiers for this latter period are :
- Reduced unit size. Most battalions are now down to 2 bases worth of troops by the time they take the field at Leipzig.
- Reduced grading. 1813 sees the average Grenadier battalion drop from grade 'Grenadier' in 1812 down to 'Elite' ... not a huge change.
- Simplified uniform. All units in standard kiver, large but thin plume, and standard red facings.
