I've finished the Russian 'hybrid' cavalry in the usual toy soldier style. I'm quite pleased with them, I think fitting the SYW infantry heads onto the Karoliner cavalry results in a fine set of figures.
Some of the details are not quite right, it depends how fussy you are - certainly an option for any 'imagination' armies.
My apologies for the photos, my wargames table and lights are not easily accessible, so just a lamp on the desk in front of the PC!
The Russian SYW heads are a great improvement on the original head, a bit larger and much more detailed.
No standard yet as I am waiting for it to arrive - only ordered it yesterday!
I think the grenadier head sits very well, and results in a splendid chap.
So if you have the Karoliner cavalry moulds and the new Russian infantry they are worth a play.
Presented with flags
The cavalry have now been presented with their flags, and blooded on the battlefield.
|The cuirassiers lead the cavalry|
|Followed by the horse grenadiers - what a large flag you have!|
|Cuirassiers decide charge Saxon grenadiers - not a good idea - they will learn!|
