Russia: Kazanski Regiment


 Just 3 months to our annual battle meeting with my nephew from US, the Russian army gets prepared for the summer warfare: we will play the "Black Powder" rules and a summer battle between Prussia and Russia. This Regimant of Kazan, the Capital of the Tatar Empire was oftenly seen during the SYW, especially in Zorndorf and Kunersdorf. They wear the red summer dress and white gaiters - some regimental specifics were not to be found in my sources - such as collar colors or other details. The figures are of the Matthias-Manske manufacture quite individually performed with heads, muskets and position.

    1. Yes, I took the advantage of some good days to shot outside - but the sky is photoshopped a little bit..:-)
