More Russian infantry for 1809 to 1815

We already have several sets of Russian infantry in our shop, sculpted by Leonid and Massimo.

Now JJ from Australia joined our group and wanted to have much more Russians. We discussed several posibilities and came to the decission that figures without heads give us a lot of possibilities.

So I looked after the regular drill poses of the Russians and Massimo sculpted these headless guys.

Next the idea was to use different heads. We have here to offer:

Grenadier Shako 1808
Musketier Shako 1809
Grenadier Shako 1809 (mostly worn in 1812-13)
Kiver 1813
Mitre for Pavlov Grenadiers

Another Kiver for the Russian guard with the eagle will follow

We will use the system more often in the future. Especially when Pieter and I tried to find the uniforms for Spanish units 1809-1814 we gave nearly up. So the idea came to make some dollies in regular poses and afterwards just add the little differences to the uniform to create the special regiments.

BTW, next in the line of JJ are Russian reservists and infantry in campaign dress.

The figures are already in the  shop. But be careful, order enough heads and not just the figures:-)

Another find from Ebay - An ACW Ironclad

This is the second time I found such an auction on Ebay Germany. This one went for around 70 Euros.

I am wondering if there is a manufactor making such a boat as a model?

A Napoleonic Baden army

At the dioramica I was able to round up my collection with the missing sets of Francesco's great range of the Baden army.

Something which is a great addition to my 1809 army fighting the Austrians.

Here just some samples form his range


Monted infantry officer

Light Dragoons

And as you know I like the exotics - The Baden Garde du Corps

Now just a set of fighting GDC is missing - we could use them for Straßburg 1815

Ok, if you want to see more, take some time and visit his shop
