Russia: Vengerskii and Slobodskii Hussars

Russia´s cavalry is now ready for the big summer battle - you can see the Slobodskaia Polka (slobodian regiment) showing an attack in the gallop during their manoeuvres in Regensburg, sweet boring Bavaria.... :-)
The slobodian regiment was composed by exilants from Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania - living in Russias western part - "New Russia" called, the region of south-western Ukraine.
I like their lightblue dolmans very much, they always look very fresh on the battlefield.
I hope they will survive the prussian bombardement...
Below the Vengerskaia Polka, the hungarian exilants´ regiment - also they were exilants from southern Hungary, some of them also refugees from the austrian monarchy...
Their blood-red dolmans are a good effect on the green-grey battlezone. The flag is showing an angel and in the style of an icon - its invented, I didn´t find any sources of russian hussar flags.

The figures are from Prince-August - the serie "Battle of Rossbach" - and  are the best figures of the serie.
"Вперёд в атаку!"

just a try with a montage - not too good...

aah!! in the center you see one figure of an old NMZ-serie

A try to show the speed...


  1. Very well done, Monseigneur ! I don't have the hussar molds but your well-painted figures and diorama are tempting me. Even the old Meisterzinn figure looks good, kind of toylike but perhaps all the more appealing because of it to my eyes. I agree, the blue hussar color scheme is particularly attractive.

    Anticipation is building nicely for the summer battle.

    mit freundlichen Grüßen,

  2. Very nice, sir. I like them a lot.

  3. Thank you Szeve for the compliments, but - honestly, the hussars aren´t really good painted - it´s a work 10 years ago... I just configure now the old parts of our armies (PA, NMZ) with the new ones (Sash&Saber, Manske) for having the possibility of wargaming with my relatives..
    I can recommen this moulds of PA, they are really marvellous..

    @Jeff: Thank you very much for your nice words (as you do always :-)) - I am also a great fan of your activities and always looking there!
