Dated: May 30, 2010.
Here are some recent shots I took of a battle I set up between some Russian troops and French troops. The forces are predominantly HaT figures, reinforced by some troops from other manufacturers. I finally decided it was time to take a break in painting my guys so I could have some fun with them.
I have your Russian Militia (one of my personal favorites, as I've said before, there is something about their personality that appeals to me) being set up to delay the attack by the French (HaT 1812 Infantry and Line Grenadiers, with artillery), while Russian Elite Grenadiers backed with various cavalry launch a counter-attack supported by various cavalry units (including your Russian Dragoons & Cossacks) and artillery batteries.
I hope you enjoy the pix as much as I enjoyed setting them up and taking them (I doubt it).

The French react to cavalry threat by attempting to form a square; French artillery, who have been following the advance unlimber to support the infantry.
