1/72 Napoleonic Russian Cuirassiers

When I was painting the 1/72 Seven Years War armies, I enjoyed the Zvezda artillery set so much that I decided to try my hand at some more of their figures. These 1812 Russian cuirassiers fit the bill!

I think they look great, although without a polyester coating, I'm not sure how resilient they will be on the tabletop.


  1. Very fancy brushwork, Scott! Are these 1/72?

    1. Yes, all 1/72! I like the Zvezda sculpts a lot. I may try my hand at their infantry next.

  2. They look excellent, Scott. I have no intention whatsoever of adopting plastics, but there are a lot of good plastic figures now, especially in 1/72 scale.

  3. The Zvezda figs are nice, and you've done them real justice.
