MY NAPOLEONIC RUSSIAN ARMY - JUNE 2014 UPDATE


As I said in the general Napoleonic page I started building my Russian army as a project for the 200th anniversary of the battle of Borodino in 2012.  It now contains 6 infantry brigades, 5 cavalry brigades and a Cossack brigade. More than enough to fill one side of my wargames table.  The last troops I added were the 2 foot command vignettes.

Kutuzov, Kutaisov and Col Toll - Perry command

Barclay, Ermolov, Uvarov and Osterman-Tolstoy in the cape - Perry command





Infantry
2 Infantry Brigades of 4 battalions each

2 Grenadier brigades of 4 battalions each

Jaeger Brigade of 4 battalions

Opolchenie (Militia) Brigade of 4 battalions - 2 battalions of St Petersburg Opolchenie and 2 battalions of Moscow Opolchenie.

All of the battalions are of 24 figures - based for Black Powder rules.  Most of the infantry figures are by Rava however the Opolchenie and the Pavlov Grenadiers are by Steve Barber.  The infantry flags came from the Foundry Napoleon flag download whilst the Opolchenie icon banners I adapted from the internet.
