Black Powder: 1809-1814 Russian Line Infantry
Product code: AC8729
Despite, or quite possibly, because of, the harsh conditions they were
brought up in, the Russian soldier was stubborn, resilient and
unflinching. The Russian infantryman played decisive roles in each of
the great battles against the French and their allies during the
Napoleonic Wars. Culminating in the great battle at Borodino, the
Russian soldier proved to be a very tough opponent indeed, often
performing their grim duties at the point of the bayonet.
This boxed set allows you to build a large battalion of Russians wearing
the traditional Russian shako that, whilst superceded by the kiwer shako
from 1812, was still worn by many regiments through to the end of the
Napoleonic Wars. Two different head options are included allowing you to
field your unit as musketeers, grenadiers or a mixture of both.
The models are simple to put together with only three parts (body, head
and backpack with sword) allowing you to build your force quickly and
get it onto the tabletop fast!
24 Russian Line Infantry miniatures:
20 plastic rank & file and four metal multi-pose command (officer,
