Having scoured the sources for different uniform colour combinations I plumped for this off white and cherry red as an interpretation of Regiment Troitski as listed on the Tacitus website, It was merely an attempt to get away from the green-red combo typifying Russian GNW illos.
The models are very easy to paint and the unfamiliar montero style of the hat was a nice diversion from the tricorne.
The picture illustrate very well the style and anatomy of these welcome additions to the range. We had some enquiries about officers in the kartuz headgear but my understanding is that similar to the Swedes, men of rank would not have worn the same peasant style headgear as the men, preferring the tricorne.
We will release more command packs for the Russians but at the moment the mounted arm is getting some focus.
