My first attempt at Russian Cavalry gets added to the collection. There are Blue Moon Russian Curassiers. Basically, I bought two packs of cavalry and one pack of command. This gave me enough figures for three 12 figure regiments, with three castings left over to spare.
The Russian army of the period lends itself very well to mass production as there is very little variation in uniforms. Just as with the infantry the only thing that differs between regiments are the colors.
|Prince Fedorovich Curassiers|
*addendum. As I do more reading/research I am finding several peculiarities with the Curassiers. For 1758 on the Prince Federovich and 3rd Curassiers actually had breastplates. The Novotroitsky and Kazanskiy regiments were still wearing their Dragoon uniforms and riding inferior mounts. There were a total of 6 squadrons between the two of them and an additional 6 squadron of Dragoons present for the battle, so I will probably just replace both regiments with two double stands of Dragoons to reflect the small size of all four regiments.
