Warlord Games’ 28mm Black Powder Napoleonic Wars range Russian Infantry Grenadiers
my first platoon done! i really hope all the colours are correct, i don’t have many references on hand. im taking my time with these models, as there is over 100 of them in a regiment. and because of that, quality will be lower than my warmachien models.
however, i did enjoy painting them, being the first that i have actually researched uniform colours and how the regiment was organized.
the Russian regiments of 1812 were made up of 3 battalions, where the second was a reserves battalion and rarely saw front line combat. and because of this, the second battalion was made up of the worst soldiers.
each battalion had one company of grenadiers and three musketeers (or fusiliers). the grenadiers company represented the best of the battalion and fought on the battalions flanks.
as a prospective history teacher, my next challenge is finding a way to incorporate wargaming into the curriculum!
