GNW Danes and Cossacks

Quickly following on from my last post are 2 further additions to my collection. First up is the Danish 2nd Sjaellandske Cuirassiers. The figures for these are Roundway with the exception of 2 command figures which are Dixon, mounted on Roundway horses. The flag is from Maverick Models.

This brings the strength of my Danish horse up to 18 squadrons. I do have enough figures to put together another 6 squadrons, more than likely these will be the Livgarden and Livregiment Cuirassiers.

The next unit is my second regiment of foot cossacks to serve in the Russian Auxiliary Corps or act as allies for the Swedes. The figures for these are all from Essex miniatures. The flag was sourced from browning images on the internet.

I've also completed a little stocktake of figures than I need to complete for this period. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The Danes - 3 infantry battalions and 6 squadrons of horse
The Swedes - 5 infantry battalions and 12 squadrons of horse
The Russians - 9 squadrons of horse and 3 medium guns
The Poles - 9 squadrons of horse

Enough to keep me busy for a while.
