Cossack Lancers

A second unit of Douglas Miniatures Cossacks takes to the field, I painted these in grey greatcoats, as opposed to the more normal blue, based upon references found on line. I have two more Cossack regiments on the go, one from Tumbling Dice and the second from Irregular Miniatures. When completed, along with another lancer unit, I will have eight Russian regiments, one Turkish and seven British Regiments. Being able to fight an action at Balaclava is becoming a reality.

  2. More great work - you can never have too many Cossacks!
