Re: Great Northern War literature, Lesnaya 1708

I'm a year late on this, but try "Vägen till Poltava - Slaget vid Lesnaja" by Pavel Knovaltjuk and Einar Lyth. This is the best modern book on the subject. They show 5149 infantry (excluding officers) and 7801 dragoons in the Corps Volante and 4976 dragoons with Bauer, again excluding officers. They...

Re: Other Scanian War uniforms?

Somewhere I have a booklet on the uniforms of the Brandenburg army at Rügen. It goes with a set of flats issued by Berliner Zinnfiguren. I think if might be at my vacation house, but it will look for it the next time I go and post the info if I can find it.

Re: Regular cavalry in tricornes?

Currently, only the cuirassiers come in tricornes. I use the figures with the cuirass under the coat because you can't see the cuirass in any event. In fact, all my Saxon dragoons are done with cuirassier figures.

Re: Grey Dragoons

The major distinction in appearance was the belts. The horse wore the sword belt across the shoulder while the dragoons wore it around the waist. You may be able to use the Russian dragoons, when they come out, but if so, I would use the standard Warfare horse because of the horse furniture. The Bri...

Re: New to the group

Barry and Clarence, By all means come to Historicon in 2018! It will be in Lancaster, PA, it's old home. The opponents of Fredericksburg have, at least by implication, assured us that thousands of "Eastern" wargamers who supposedly would not travel all the way to the "South" (after all, Fredericksbu...

Re: Question (for Gunter?) on Saxon cuirassiers

All the contemporary paintings that I have seen show the Saxon cavalry in hats.

Re: Bicorne miniatures

Redoubt ECW are the same size as Bicorne, or I should say the other way around, since Redoubt came first. Most of their figures have separate heads.

It's been many years since I bought any Bicorne figures, but all of mine have heads attached.

Re: How to pike the russians

i believe that according to the 1708 regulations, every other man in the front rank was to be armed with a pike and a pistol. Thus 1/8 of the men were to have pikes. How many regiments had them, I don't know. Since the infantry in the flying column that fought at Lesenja were mounted while on the ma...
