Russian Grenadiers in action
Some photographs of my Russian Army for the Russo Turkish War 1787 to 1792. The Russians fought in the “Potemkin” uniform which was abolished in 1796 when Czar Paul came to power. The Russians fought the Poles, the Swedes and the Turks in this uniform.
All figures are from Falcon Figures except the mounted officers which are Old Glory 15mm SYW Russian officers which are perfectly compatible. Rules will probably be house rules.
I have not painted the Turkish force yet although I do have some samples on order.
I have to acknowledge the Din of Battle website run by Eric Burgess in North Carolina USA. His section on the Russo Turkish War has been a true inspiration. Scroll through his older posts to see some of his figures in action.
