Loads more new Russians... and some Swedes

Post by barr7430 » Sun Feb 07, 2016 1:23 pm

So this new batch of sculpts will take our Russians up to 10 packs or just under 50% of the available Swedish infantry codes.

A 22nd Swedish infantry code is now sculpted - Grenadiers in mitre, ready.

Get a peek here

Still can't comment on the Bolg...

I love the defending musketeers, absolutely superb!

Are you intending to produce kneeling pikemen at the 'receive charge'?

Barry,

I will have to see if I can fit these in between Ireland and my Ottoman project.

Mine most likeley run that way! All are termed SAXONY :lol:
It is of course a different Story as the term Saxony covers projects from the 9th to the 19th century :wink:

Fortunately I only have one regiment of the 'boys in blue' to model...

Then it will be a question of simply trying to fit in a few(!) defenders of Holy Mother Russia amongst my other projects! :?

Very Nice!!

PS the defensive positions I see the men lunging with the bayonet what is the other pose?

Looks like a very awkward stance, is it a stationary present Bayonette stance for receiving cavalry or infantry? It Looks like the hand holds the butt I take it to take the impact but looks like it cannot be lunged very effectively if something is up close?

Seems to be accepted by Russian re-enactors as a valid position, and also by a Russian based figure manufacturer...

I'm afraid I can't read Cyrillic either...

I seem to recall English/British armies used the same "charge bayonet" drill, certainly during the '45. Contemporary pictures in Morier (sp) show this. Didn't Duffy say it was a direct pose from the push pike drill movement transposed to a musket and bayonet?

Cant say why but I am unable to see a text there so I give here a link to a picture of a Russian Infantry drill book of 1698 that shows that "Musket Push":

Page is from the Russian Guards Re-Enactor Website
which is partially in english http://www.peter.petrobrigada.ru/reg/reg_e.htm

Hope that helps

Cheers,
