What an ugly scene we have to see here, so early in the morning somewhere in Eastern Prussia. Russian Horse Grenadiers of the "Leibdragoner-Regiment" pursue the young lady with her stepmother, not far from their farm!
I bought recently some Peipp-figures from their Middle Ages serie to check if their 40mm scale could be suitable with our 40mm miniatures. It works quite well; Peipp figures have a seize of exactly 40mm, our Manske-figures (and Sash&Saber, Prince August) measure 42-43mm.
The Horse Grenadiers are the first of the Tsar´s Regiment "Leibdragoner" I will complete in the next weeks. Although they didn´t participate at the SYW, I like their uniforms with this kind of a certain "grandeur".
|It takes a good end, as you can see.....|
