Cossacks marauding in Prussia

It is a cruel moment to see this scene on the picture, but I am also in love with this: there are so fantastic miniatures, done by Ian Kay, plenty of details and superb proportions (Irregular Miniatures - 42mm). The farmer girl is of El Viejo Dragon (1/43 Roman slave), but she matches well with the Russian lads on this round base. It is a kind of "the beauty and the beast" what  inspired me.
This was my first order at Irregular Miniatures and I am more than happy with this small art pieces.

So, shortly, I just combined them with my existing Cossacks of Matthias-Manske and made a short setting of a marauding unit in a burning village - as well known from contemporary descriptions of the battles of Kunersdorf and Zorndorf.

This are the second two figures of Irregular miniatures: The Ataman of the Cossack horde and a private with the typical flag

It is a mistaken photo, but I like it :-)

  4. Wonderful painting and presentation. I agree with Phil, I also like the picture you call a mistake, it gives feeling of movement and action with the blurred running figures and a sharp background.

    I also like the painting and staging from the previous post, especially the translucent wet cloth. Excellent!
