Minden SYW Russian Observation Corps Figures Have Arrived

The new Minden SYW Russian Observation Corps ("OC") figures arrived from Griffin Moulds yesterday. The figures include OC musketeers and grenadiers, both in their summer kit of sleeved waistcoats. The officers wear the regulation coat. Both groups of figures have a command pack of 5 figures and a rank & file pack of 8 soldiers. There will also be packs of two extra standard bearers for both musketeers and grenadiers.

The Observation Corps figure packs are being offered at $10.00 for the command packs, $4.00 for the spare standard bearer packs, and $16.00 for the pack of rank and file soldiers. The Observation Corps figures will be priced at the old Minden prices for a limited time, through June 30, 2018, afterwhich they will be sold at the regular Minden prices.

The new figure packs are now added to the Fife & Drum Miniatures web store.

  1. I really like seeing SYW Russians in summer kit.


    When you want a SYW army sharpish, you can't do better than choose Russians in summer 'small clothes'. I'm so glad you went this route with this range.

    Any clients of mine, reading this and wanting to buy Russians for commissioned painting, should get in touch with you.

    Best Regards,
