Dismounted Russian Dragoons
Foundry figures, a bit comic-book but otherwise okay figures. The horse Grenadiers next week are much nicer figures..

Russian Dragoons (2)
The bottom picture shows the three command bases for the 'faux' dragoons - Regiments Kazanski, Kievski and Novotroitsky. With a total of 16 squadrons one will be able to field any number of regiments up to seven in varying numbers of squadrons. Next week - dragoons on foot and following soon Horse Grenadiers.

Russian Dragoons (1)
I will be painting 4 'real' Dragoon regiments and 3 'faux' regiments. The latter were dragoon regiments converted to Cuirassiers during the course of the war but it is unknown when they received their new uniforms (remember they were almost constantly on campaign) and certainly they are unlikely to have been given heavy Cuirassier horses to replace their rather small (by comparison to Prussian dragoon horses) horses.
The blue in the pictures is somewhat lighter than I have painted them, I have favoured a medium blue for the first coat and a cornflower-medium blue mix for the shading. The figures are from Foundry and are again Copplestone sculpts, like the majority of the Prussians, and are superb.
