Some more Russian command.

I've managed to finish two more from the relatively new Musketeer Miniatures Russian command pack. There are no flags from LBM yet so I have given the standard bearer a temporary company colour for the Preobrazhensky Life Guards. Hopefully, by the time I finish the unit proper flags will be available. I have some more Russians based and ready for painting so may start some soon but only after I have finished painting some of the part finished units which are taking up space on my table.

Command so far

Some Russian command...

I picked up some more Musketeer Miniatures Russians on eBay recently, so will try and get some more done soon. In the meantime, I have painted a couple of figures from the relatively new command pack. They represent the Preobrazhensky Life Guards. I also have an officer and a standard bearer nearly done but, as yet, there are no flags for the Russians, as there are for the Swedes, from Little Big Men.
I based the uniforms and drum colours on this group of St Petersburg re-enactors. Partizans in the Russian army at the time had single spear-like points rather than the trefoil designs seen in the west.
