As many of you know, one of my
All that is left for me to add now are Suvalov's Observation Corps (that will be two "regiments" of grenadiers, eight of musketeers and some artillery), Cossacks (one can never have enough of them), more generals and some converged grenadiers. speaking of the last two...
That's two more units of the blighters. At some point I'll need another two.
Back in August our club did a refight of Kunersdorf - I supplied all the Russians apart from the Observation corps and some Cossacks. It became evident that I didn't have enough "generals" to act as brigade commanders, so I thought I'd better add some.
The chaps in cloaks will be used as infantry brigade commanders, the cloakless ones as cavalry and artillery brigade commanders. Here's a pic of my generals collection in their storage:
Looking at that pic tells me that I might need to add some more "division" commanders. Adding those to the list might mean there will be a SYW Russian entry from me in AHPC XI. I should probably also do a C-in-C base and maybe some hussars acting as messengers. OK, I give in - there will almost certainly be an entry for this project next time around.
All the figures are 15mm from Essex Miniatures.
36 x 15mm foot @ 2 = 72 points
9 x 15mm mounted @ 4 = 36 points
Total = 108 points
A great project and a worthy one for you to attempt as well! However, if you really want to label this as a monomaniacal project, I would suggest you have to do it in 1:1 figure:real life men count! Come on Tamsin, are you up to the challenge????
All kidding aside, they look awesome and it is a very cool project. I love the look of all of your ranked up 15mm figures, they look amazing, and it boggles my mind how you a) deal with all those damn finicky uniforms in 15mm and b) how you stay on topic with such a large project. I have far too much gamer ADHD to deal with any large project anymore, and when I do, its 10-20 models for project X then sidetracked, then back, then sidetracked.... rinse and repeat, then at some point just completely squirrel out and leave it 75% done forever....
I envy your ability to stick to a project of this size and get it done, and for that rounded your score to 110 points.
