Russian Irregular Cossacks 1808

As I hade Regular Cossacks I needed some Irregulars Cossacks to :) 

So got me a box of Gripping Beast Arab Light Cavalry and converted them in to my needed Russian Irregular Cavalry, once again most of the heads are from Perry plastics and the loot on back of the horses are mostly Victrix french backpacks.

Last some pictures of both the Regular and Irregular Cossacks.

Frostgrave Warband

Inspired by my mateys at the club I just had to build me a Frostgrave Warband, made me a barbarian themed warband with a Shaman wizard (witch) so I could try to get me an Animal Companion a big Bear:)

All minis is from the plastic Frostgrave and Oathmark range except for the bear that are from Reaper.

Had my first game with them and it seems like I have more to learn...

Russian Regular Cossacks 1808

Got a free box from Warlord Games by the ones to choose from the British Union  Brigade was the best as I could convert them in to ok Russian Regular Cossacks for my 1808 project, made me a unit of Guard Cossacks (Read) and a unit of Uniformed Cossacks (Blue). The heads are from different Perry plastic boxes, probably french cavalry if I recolect right.

Objective markers from Wiley Games

I ordered 2 different packs of Objective markers from Wiley Games, one Sci-fi themed and one Wild West themed. it was 10 in each pack, the home page stated "cast in reine" but for me they look 3d-printed? not a big deal anyway, as they are very nicely printed and cleaned up. The bases are 25mm.

Love the look of them especially the "X mark the spot" and the "money bags". They are now in my painting que to get some colours and will then add to our games. 

A good and cost effecive addition to my wargaming "scenary", recomende!!!

Russian Grenadiers and officers 1808


Needed some Russian Grenadiers too... These units are made up of all sort of long coated minis... french, russians from crimean war etc. they all go Russian Grenadier caps and it in the end turned out good enought, for me at least, sorry if i upset any uniformhearts... :)

Also some mounted officers/commanders on 40mm round bases.

Russian Jaegers 1808

These minis have been re-based and to some degree re-painted as Jaegers, wanted all my jaegers in a more Skirmish look and I also just based 4 minis on each base to show the looser formation and distinguish them from the line infantry. I also made me 4 bases of Skirmishing jaegers. All (I think) minis from Brigade Games.
