Grodno Hussars 1808



As you know I have been trying to convert some of the new splendid warlord French Napoleonic Hussars in to Russians. I have now painted 26 (was possible to make 13 out of each box) of them.



I tried to get them to look as Grodno Hussars as they took part in the Russian Invassion of Finland in 1808 and was during a greate part of the campaign in the Russian vanguard under command of the famous cavalry commander J.P. Kulnev.



I must admit that I´m not a fan of painting napoleonic uniforms, but I hope you cope anyway...

  3. Not a fan of painting Napoleonic uniforms either, but there is no denying that they look stunning when seen as a group like these.

  6. They look great! Have you seen the Swedish soldier I painted up using the Perry Danish/Norwegian miniature for 1808-1809 War? I think it came out pretty good. I will paint up more for Sharp Practice.
