Russian Dragoons Tverskii






























Here I present you my first regiment made of 42mm Irregular Miniatures, done by Ian Kay in UK.
In originla, they are called Austrian Dragoons, but they match very well with their purpose to be Russian Dragoons. Tver, a beautiful and old Russian city in the south of Petersburg, with an old, medieval Kreml fortress, provided 2 Regiments for the warfare in Prussia. So, they were seen at Kunersdorf and Zorndorf.
The officer, standard bearer and drummer are made by Matthias Manske - I think, this combination works well!

  1. Lovely photos; what a super regiment - the Irregular Miniatures and the Matthias Manske figures mix well together.

  6. Lovely work, great colour on the blue uniform and I love the natural light in those photographs. I could almost feel the dew on the grass and the smell the horses. Bravo.
