Russian Musketeers Day 5 - Finished

Woohoo! They're done. So, on with the pics.

First of all, Peter B asked for a pic of them with the grenadiers I painted a couple of weeks ago:

Now, without the grenadiers:

Voronejskiy Regiment:

Viatskiy Regiment:

And getting in a little bit closer on the command stands:

Lastly, a pic of my SYW Russian collection to date:

That's 6 regiments of cavalry (2 cuirassiers, 1 dragoon, 1 horse grenadier, 2 hussars); 12 regiments of foot (8 musketeers, 4 grenadiers); 2 artillery pieces and 3 commanders. In all, about three quarters of what it will be when I finish painting the figures I currently have in the queue.


  1. Great work there.



  2. They look very keen to see some action

  3. They turned out damn nice Tamsin!

  4. Yeah! Well done Tamsin, they look wonderful.

  5. Thanks for posting that first picture Tamsin! That looks really impressive! As the last picture does!
    Great work overall Tamsin! Thanks for sharing!


  6. @ Martin C - thanks! :)

    @ Pete - cheers! :)

    @ Clint - the officers may be keen, but the troops less so :)

    @ da Gobbo Grotto - glad you like them :)

    @ Loki - cheers! :)

    @ Francis - that they did, that they did :)

    @ Michael A - thank you m'Lord :)

    @ Peter - you're welcome! And thanks! :)

  7. I'm always tardy! Fantastic Tamsin, what a great army! I'd love to paint SYW Russians one day and this is good inspiration. We had SYW going locally for a bit with Maurice but it went cold.

  8. Look great Tamsin. Time for me to get a copy of King of the Battlefield methinks! Greatly inspiring. Thankyou

  9. Look great Tamsin. Time for me to get a copy of King of the Battlefield methinks! Greatly inspiring. Thankyou

  10. Looking good Tamsin and the figures too. Very effective en mass. I need to get back on my 15mm AWI French, but not just yet.

  11. @ Monty - thank you! I've been enjoying painting this army up and these four regiments have actually gone up a notch compared to my original batch which people loved :)

    @ Stefan - cheers! :)

    @ Jon - thanks! I don't know where King of the Battlefield is available from, but will check for you :)

    @ Dannoc - cheers! Only another eight regiments of foot, two/three cuirassiers, a horde of hussars, a steppe of Cossacks, some guns and some commanders to go before I call this army complete :)
