Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Russians in great coats

I just got my 1805 French in greatcoats, and unfortunately the officer wouldn't work very well;'he just has a bandolier with his sword scabbard, and what appear to be rolled up trousers.
The Russian officers had a sash and their swords on a belt.
As for the musicians, they have epaulettes (which I suppose you could trim off) but then they still have the wrong webbing and a very non-french look.
In fact the only suitable figure I can think of is the drummer in the rather flawed Italeri Prussians set, and he's a big boy. Still, I guess a drummer had to be fairly sturdy to schlepp his drum along.

I am not sure, but Finescale factory made some Russians in greatcoat some years ago. Maybe there are officers in this range, I don't know.

The only Russian officer in greatcoat I have is a figure made by Frank Germershaus.

A set of marching figures in greatcoat sounds great!


Re: Russians in great coats

Just a thought, for an officer with Greatcoat how about the officer from the HAT Swedish Napoleonic set.

Would he be suitable enough as is or would a head swap be possible to give him the right look.

The real shame is that Strelets already have released their Command set but no real suitable greatcoat officer provided.
