Black Powder 7 Years War Russian Army Project

Hi there,

Heavily influenced by a fantastic Black Powder Seven Years War demo at Impact in Uden, I decided to make my own miniature wargame troops for this historical period. And this is why I very recently started  creating a Russian 7YW army.

This army is going to have musketeer and grenadier battalions, Pandurs and of course cavalry units like cuirassiers, dragoons and hussars. Wanted it to have mounted Cossacks and horse grenadiers too. Furthermore I needed some field and regimental artillery plus command stands. Here you see the first result showing my basic Russians. 

All figures are in 1:72 scale and for most part plastics from companies like Revell and Zvezda. Have done some minor conversions like headswaps. Unlike the ones shown in the picture all model guns will come from Zvezda's Great Northern War Russian artillery set. Will start coating and painting my first units in July. So I don't mind when it's a bit of a rainy summer in Holland this year.
