Russian 3rd Cuirassiers




Russian heavy cavalry got some reinforcement by this splendid green-toned Cuirassiers. I am not sure, if this an original color, worn during the campaigns in the Seven Years War, but I found in the huge Vinkhuizen library a nice picture of this regiment. So, I gave them the name of the 3rd Cuirassiers. The figures are of Matthias-Manske, the saddlebags are made of paper, their details are printed in the computer. I am sorry to confess, I am not talented enough to paint such small decals by hand....






"Kirasirskii nasladnika polk" - the following regiment - whatever that means...

  6. Un magnifique régiment de cuirassiers, superbement représenté. Lumière et l'ambiance, car ils sont toujours uniques. J'espère que nous pourrons bientôt voir ces cuirassiers se battent dans une de vos grandes batailles. Grande salutation de l'extrême sud.

    1. Merci beaucoup pour tes mots!! La bataille doit attendre encore un peu, malheureusement... nous ne réussirons pas à nous rencontrer pour un jeu - trop grandes les distances....
