I had had a slowly growing Russian army for the Napoleonic era in my cupboard for a few years and had so far painted only few of them for Retreat from Moscow 1812 games. So off I went to rummage my dash and the pile of lead and plastic came up quite impressive...
Tonite I then went on to kitbash different Napoleonic miniatures to create plastic troopers for 1808 Finns... see the pics on how it turned out!
The bits are mainly from Perry MIniatures' Austrian Napoleonic Infantry, the officer on horseback and the white plastic arms are from Victrix's Austrian Landwehr box and the plumes are from different French cavalry heads.
First set of Finns ready - front
And from behind. I still need to either paint or model (liquid green stuff maybe...) the white bands that cross the back and hold cartridge box and the cutlass sword,
As a comparison, here's a link to how Dalauppror did it.
I'll be painting these pretty soon me thinks!
