28mm SYW Russian 3rd Observation Corps Regiment

Here is the the second regiment painted (remember the 2nd was not fully raised) so it is the 3rd. The choice of flag, as I said in the previous post, is conjectural.


  1. Great work, your Seven Years War collection is an inspiration to me and my feeble 10mm attempts.

    Did the battalions retain their grenadiers or did they form part of the Observation Corps grenadier battalions?

    1. Hi, thanks for your comments.
      As in the regular army, they did both! In other words it depended on the C-in-C's viewpoint. In some instances they remained with their musketeer companions and in others they were all converged together. This practice continued into the Napoleonic wars.

  2. Very nice indeed. Was glad to see your info regarding grenadiers. Had mine detached and then put them back in battalions. Now I feel I have an option. Mine are front rank purchased in the 1990's when they first came out. Mine are 48 figures strong. Yours look larger.
