New Minden Russian Musketeers - summer kit

Moscowski Regiment using Minden Miniatures
(click on all pictures to enlarge the view)

The first of the new Minden SYW Russian army figures are back from the caster and are ready to be added to the product range. The rank and file figures are wearing their red waistcoats (their green coats being left behind with the baggage train during the Summer and Fall months of the year). The officers, standard bearers and NCOs wear their green coats, as befits their rank.

Flags are from GMB Designs.

I had some time to paint a battalion of the figures (32-figures) and I really like the way that they turned out. Add in a couple GMB Designs flags you get a fine looking battalion of infantry.

  1. Agreed! A great looking unit, and your revised basing scheme, ie, the drummers and officers on the flanks, really adds to the overall look of the thing.

    Best Regards,


  2. They are up to the usual Ansell standard for sure! I love your paint job on these.

  3. Wonderful! So tempted to add to my Russian army.

  4. Figures, painting and basing all superb.
    Happy New Year to you.
