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.

  1. Another lovely regiment with atmospheric lighting effects. I particularly like the last photo with the long grass and blurry distance.

  2. Beautiful photos with perfect lighting. You have a huge and magnificent collection. I have not seen anything, nor in size or quality, in the many Web sites dedicated to wargame I visited. Greetings from these distant lands. Carlos
