Russian 3rd Cuirassiers

Russian heavy cavalry got some reinforcement by this splendid green-toned Cuirassiers. I am not sure, if this an original color, worn during the campaigns in the Seven Years War, but I found in the huge Vinkhuizen library a nice picture of this regiment. So, I gave them the name of the 3rd Cuirassiers. The figures are of Matthias-Manske, the saddlebags are made of paper, their details are printed in the computer. I am sorry to confess, I am not talented enough to paint such small decals by hand....

"Kirasirskii nasladnika polk" - the following regiment - whatever that means...
