Napoleonic Russian Infantry 28mm
I finished these last Friday. They are Perry Miniatures 28mm plastic figures (Russian Napoleonic Infantry 1809-1814). I put them together with the 1812 Kiwer and gave the unit some flags I already had from the rear of the Foundry 'Napoleon' rulebook. They were quite easy to assemble coming in only three parts - head, backpack and body. The uniform jackets are just Vallejo Military Green with a highlight, and the trousers are white with a GW Agarax Earthshade wash (or whatever they're calling it these days).
I'm currently reading Dominic Lieven's very fine book "Russia Against Napoleon" which I received for Christmas. Definitely worth picking up as it gives a unique insight into the Russian army at that time and rather debunks some of the Francophile myths concerning the 1812 campaign.
