28mm 1812 Russian Hussars

Glenn is fielding three units of hussars in his Russian army.  I chose units that would give him as wide a variety of colors as possible.

All figures are from Foundry.

Achtyrka Hussars

Izioumski Hussars 

Soum Hussars

Now I just have the mounted Jager left, and I will be done with the cavalry!


  1. Beautifully done; not surprisingly the Soum and Aktyrsk regiments were the first two that I did for my own Russian army, the grey/red and yellow/brown combnations both being striking and really standing out from the "Green Horde" of the reast of the Russian army.

  2. Exactly why I chose them! Great minds think alike.

  3. Love, love, love the detail and the colors.
    These are some beautiful units.

    I first started collecting Wargames Foundry figures in 1998 or so, and I think only Perry are better.

  4. It's a shame that Foundry did these guys wearing their cover-alls. The grey pants eliminate some of the extra color 'pop' achieved in the dress uniform pants/ boots of these Hussars.

    Still, they look very ready for battle and authentic.

  5. Impressive painting as always, Scott. Love the details on the trumpeter. Best, Dean

  6. Yes, hussars look best in full dress. But doesn't everyone?

  7. Scott,

    I have just been looking over the fantastic Russian Army you have painted and they a inspirational.

    Thank you

  8. Thanks, all. Still a long way to go!

  9. Very nice! I used to live in the Region of Ukraine near Sumy and Akhtyrka. It's very beautiful. Sumy, in particular, is very proud of their Hussar heritage and they have a new memorial in town.
