Russian Dragoons "Pskov"






















A new Russian cavalry regiment is finished now, recruited in the old city of Pskov, near the Latvian border. Wearing the classic Russian blue coats, I like in particular the orange flag in combination with a light brown saddle cloth. That´s all.
The troopers are from the range of Irregular Miniatures (poor Ian - he produced more than 100 horses and riders the last half year only for me!!), the command is from Matthias Manske.

Saxon Chevauxlegers "Prinz Albrecht"















Next Saxon cavalry regiment finished: Prinz Albrecht Chevauxlegers, which had cold grey coats and fir green turnbacks. Following Dr. Stephen Summerfield, this regiment was stationed in Poland during the warfare of the Prussians in 1756 and avoided the fate of the Saxon units captured at Pirna. Later in the SYW, they served with the Austrian army (Kolin, Breslau, Leuthen).
They wore first the grey uniform, which was taken later by the Feldjaeger corps.
A combination of Irregular miniatures (troopers) and Sash and Saber (command).
