The sampling of various SYW Russian infantry continues. Today a 23 figure battalion of Russian infantry in green coat marches off from the painting desk.
Foot figures are from Lancashire Games while the mounted colonel is a Russian mounted officer from Eureka Miniatures. The Lancashire Games' musketeers march out in a single pose. Unlike the recently completed Old Glory Russian musketeers, Lancashire Games offers no pose variation. All figures are in lock step with no differentiation. For the marching precision and discipline of the SYW, a single pose works.
Though more stiff than the Old Glory Russians, a battalion of these Russians looks perfectly at ease alongside a battalion of Old Glory Russians. One reader in a comment on the Old Glory Russians suggested a figure comparison might be in order. With figures from five different manufacturers in the SYW project thus far, I think that is a good idea.
