It depends on how ‘historical’ you want to be, Stephen, versus getting a nice mix of regimental ‘colours’ on the table. If we follow the ‘historical’ path of ‘formal’ organisation, consulting A.V. Viskovatov’s Organisation of the Russian Army: 1801-1825 http://marksrussianmilitaryhistory.info ... tore.htm#2
we find your Elisavetgrad Hussars as follows:
October – 1810 – ‘solo’ (un-brigaded), assigned to support the 4th Infantry Division, 1st Corps.
October – 1811 – re-organised into the 2nd Cavalry Division, brigaded with the Izyum Hussars.
May – 1812 – assigned to support 2nd Infantry Corps (still part of 2nd Cav. Div.) – 1st Western Army (Barclay); their brigade fellows (Izyum Hussars) are assigned to support the 4th Infantry Corps.
December – 1812 – reorganised into the 1st Hussar Division, 1st Brigade, and brigaded with the Grodno Hussars
August – 1814 – as part of the reorganized 4th Infantry Corps, the 3rd Hussar Division, 1st Brigade, the Elisavetgrad Hussars are brigaded again with the Izyum Hussars.
So much for ‘formal’ organisation. At any given battle you might find individual hussar regiments operationally re-assigned nearly anywhere. For example, looking at the battle of Borodino (Alex Mikaberidze’s OOB http://www.napoleon-series.org/military ... eOOB1.html
) you find the Elisavetsgrad Hussars in the 1st Reserve Cavalry Corp (Uvarov), 3rd Brigade, brigaded with the Nezhinsk Dragoon Regiment. By the autumn of 1813, prior to Leipzig, the Elisavetgrad Hussars are serving with Winzingerode’s Russian Corps (as part of the Allied ‘Army of the North’ nominally under Bernadotte), and are brigaded with the St.Petersburg Dragoon Regiment (see: http://www.napoleon-series.org/military ... goob3.html
Personally, given the regimental uniform colours, I'd probably paint up the Izyum Hussars to go with the Elisavetgradskis.
