Napoleonic Russian Brigade Generals 1805 - 07



"What do you see Tavarich?" Nice Elite Miniatures rearing horse with an Essex General and a
lovely telescope wielding Cavalry officer of the Cuirassiers, also from Essex, and possibly
from the Napoleonic Austrian range if my memory serves me correctly  
\A quick post to show a few nice General command stands for my 1805-07 Russians that are on the go at present.  Always important to represent in any good set of Napoleonic rules and the wonderful General De Brigade is certainly no different.


Nice stone marker from Eureka Miniatures

Lovely Elite Miniatures horse, one of my favourites from their range, rearing perfectly


Another two excellent Elite Russian figures

To finish another command stand that I use to represent a cavalry Brigade or Divisional General.  This one is a wonderful Elite Miniatures General accompanied by a Hussar trooper painted to represent an ADC from one of the colourful Hussar Regiments.

I think I will add some orange and black "under" feathers to his hat to help put the final touches on this figure ala Von Peters at his best when painting Russian generals.

    1. Thank you very much Paul. They hopefully are made of a tougher mettle than some of their historical counterparts!

    1. Thank you Mark - the Elites are just looking right at the moment and the plus side is that they are very sturdy with bayonets tougher than some modern figures heads and shakos!! They certainly handle clumsy fingers better than most.

    1. Very nice of you to say Pat - much appreciated. I am sure the severe bearings his NCO's dish out have just as much, if not more, motivational value!! How's that book coming along?

  9. Very nice Carlo, can't quite get the detail in 10mm (but not far off). I note the Chevalier Guard (I presume Cuirassier) scouting the area, somewhere in Russia?
