Zouave CommandThe residual project from before Christmas was the command group for the French Zouaves. These are Wodensfeld figures and now that they are painted they fit in quite well with the Douglas Miniatures infantrymen. The pictures are a bit grainy due to light issues. I may take some more at the weekend. The standard is downloaded from a picture on the internet and touched up with gold paint and set with pva glue.

Russian Infantry - GrenadiersRussian grenadiers wore exactly the same uniform as line and light troops, except for minor embellishments to the uniform, and of course the standards that they carried. This unit is made up of R1, officer in helmet, R2 infantry in helmet advancing and R14 infantry standard bearer in helmet. They are also wearing white summer trousers, just for a change! The standard denotes a grenadier regiment of the 3rd Division.
