Perry Miniatures 28mm retreat from Russia 1812

Hi all,
 its been a while since my last post i have now painted the cossacks but unfortunately i have ran out of cavalry bases but i have sent an order to Perry Miniatures so ordered some assorted plastic bases at the same time.However at least i still had some extra 20mm single bases knocking around so i have painted and based four of the dismounted cavalry.
  I decided to paint them in a variety of looted clothing, some are wearing sheepskin so i painted those in different colours some i have added the odd Russian greatcoat. on these ones i decided to leave off a white wash and to keep them fairly clean looking.The bases i have left fairly sparse with a couple of winter clumps for effect.
 The 11th Hussars in my version of indigo blue with a civilian shirt on underneath.

 A cuirassier with looted Russian greatcoat underneath his cape.

 Another 11th hussar in sheepskin.

 A Caribinier  with sheepskin under his cape.

 A group shot.

I will put the cossacks up later on in the week once they are based, these will be up for sale along with the above and eight others that are moving along the production line. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
   Regards Furphy.
