Work continues on fielding a gameable, opposition force in Kevin's Great Game project. Following the Russian hussars seen earlier in the month, today a dozen Wargames Foundry Russian Cossacks depart the painting desk.
As all of the Foundry figures in the Crimean War range, these light cavalry are well formed. The only issue I have with these sculpts is that the ponies' tails are very fragile. I lost quite a few during shipping and then later during painting. Hopefully, epoxy will keep most of the tails intact during the rigors of gaming. If not, they might just be bobbed! A second dozen of these fine chaps await in The Lead Pile to offer reinforcements when needed.
I will stick the this project for one more unit before moving on to something else. On the workbench are two dozen Sikhs in their summer (dirty) whites.
