Finished up a cavalry base for my Blucher Russians. This is Lanskoi's brigade at Lutzen, composed of the Alexandria, White Russia, and Soum Hussars.
|Uniforms were grey, black, and blue. A somber lot, this.|
Tried something a little different with this base, going for a larger number of "unit clumps" composed of a smaller number of figures. Not sure if it sells the effect as well as the last base I did, but it's growing on me.
|Turns out, 6mm pelisses (pelissae?) are kind of cute.|
In Blucher, there's only two categories of Russian cavalry (three, if you include cossacks), heavy (guards and cuirrassiers) and "not-heavy", which seems to include dragoons, hussars, uhlans, etc. I figure by sticking to an all Hussar brigade, I can run these as "lights" in any game with more granular distinctions between units. I'll admit, I am tempted to do up a mixed cavalry brigade at some point, although the Russians seem to have mostly brigaded their cavalry by weight.
Some AoS/40k stuff is likely next, and then more historicals. Until then, stay well.
