Attack Column.

Closed Column.

In Square Formation.

In Line Formation, being 3 ranks deep over a 150 yd frontage.

Figures by Warrior Miniatures, which has an excellent and complete range of Russians in early shako. Being quite simple figures, they work really well for Russians of this period.

Note the interesting command figures, which include a few extras like the sergeant with spontoon.

More Russians !

Hurrah !

  1. Being a "color whore", I much prefer these earlier uniforms with their many hued facings to their far more drab successors! Of course, all my own Russians are painted for 1812 anyway...
