Russian Brigade for Black Powder

Here's a hodgepodge of makers in a decent sized Russian brigade for Black Power. How historically accurate the composition is, I have no clue. I just like to have combined arms brigades for games as it adds more interest for players.
The Pavlov Grenadiers are Front Rank, the Cuirassiers, artillery and Jaegers are Foundry, the "large" battalion Connoisseur, and the command from Warlord Games, including an additional foot figure of as yet unknown manufacturer. I'd like to add two more figures to the Cuirassier unit, but for now it'll do as a Standard sized unit.

On the home front, it has been a bit worrisome - one of my dogs is accused of something grave against another dog in the neighborhood. I'm hoping everything will be smoothed out in the next few days, but it is troubling. Fortunately, he is doing fine and keeping up with the hobby and this blog the best I can helps keep my mind off of it. Here is a picture of the accused:
 Best wishes to all.


  1. Great work- are you planning to expand it with the new Perry Russian plastics?


  2. That's a splendid looking force Dean!

  3. Nice looking troops!!! He looks innocent enough!

  4. Wonderful looking unit; maybe, just maybe I’ll demonstrate enough focus to put something like that on the table!
    Look at those eyes; totally innocent!

  5. Lovely work but I hope the dog worries get sorted, he's a stunning looking dog!

  6. Thanks for the great comments and well wishes!

    Jacob: I do plan on adding a few battalions of those lovely looking Perry plastics.

    Best, Dean

  7. Great looking brigade!

    Wonderful dog as well!!!

    I have a few boxes of the Perry Russians sitting on my (overcrowded) workbench. Can't wait to dig in!

    All the Best!

  9. Great work on the brigade.

    *** Ahem - in a very unmanly voice ***

    Who's a cutie-wootie-doggy-woggy?

  10. Excellent Brigade. The Russians look like a lot of fun to paint and I've been able to see the sprues from the new Perry Plastic Russians..... Aiyyy Carumba I do not need yet another army!

    Great looking and very innocent looking dog. I was pleased to see in a later post that the situation seems to have resolved itself.


  11. I can't wait to see the rest of your Russian army.
