Russian Reserve Cavalry Cleaned and Preped - Ready for Painting

Three regiments of Cavalry finally cleaned customized and ready for priming.  The three regiments are the Guard Cossacks, and an unspecified (as of yet) regiment of Cuirassiers and of Chasseurs.  The Chasseurs a Cheval were the last to be customized.  Below is an example of taking a trooper and turning him into an officer.  I removed the carbine and ammunition pouches, and then added epaulets and an officer's sash out of green putty.  A simple, but necessary conversion.

Next post will hopefully have some color added to the first regiment on the painting desk; the Cossacks of the Guard....


  1. A very nice conversion, Dave. I also admire your daring in lining all those troopers up like that. I'd need to go and have a long lie down if I tried that!

    All the best, and Merry Christmas.

    1. The prospect of painting all of those lads and their horses is a tad daunting now that you mention it...
