Russian Skirmishers

I spotted these figures on Ebay. They are Russian Cossack infantry by Strelets and they were nicely painted. All up there are around 50 figures, so I varnished them, touched them up and based them to form two Battalions of skirmishers. 

They are great figures, with some lively (and some odd) poses that remind me of the skirmishers that were portrayed in the film Charge of the Light Brigade, as the British began their assault over the Alma.

Battalion one:

  1. Very nice additions.

    Best Regards,


  2. I find Strelets always a bit 'lively'! I think I used these as Ukrainian Light Infantry.
