Just preparing to paint the last of my Russian cavalry for Balaklava, and this time it is the composite uhlan regiment on the bench. Sources are pretty thin, so I'm having to guesstimate the uniforms for the eight different squadrons, but what of their gallant commander, Colonel Jeropkine? I assume he would be in a regimental uhlan uniform too, but I have been unable to find his parent regiment, so if anyone out there knows or has a suggestion about painting this figure, I would be very grateful!
That is excellent information! So, six squadrons rather than eight, which neatly translates as two boxes: I'm using all Strelets figures, which aren't wearing overcoats of course, so the uniform details and colors are just what I needed.
Now if I could just find out which regiment colonel Jeropkine belonged to, or find a mounted senior officer wearing an overcoat......:+1:
