Follow up from "New Gaming Room Taking Shape" TMP link

Finally moved into the new place, and started unpacking everything. That is going to take another couple of years I think … piles of crap everywhere, several tables setup, lead mountain laid out and organised, but I STILL cant find my freakin airbrushes yet !! grrrrr !

Anyway, back online now, so I shall start with the Russians. I have a tonne of Russians to blog about.

The theme is Russians, with an emphasis on :

- 1812+ Napoleonic Russians
- Covering all troop types in the Russian service as best as I can
- Looking at formations and tactics for each unit type
- A description of the stats for each unit, with a lean towards Empire / R+E
- General spamming for my computer moderated rules, and how these Russians fit into that.

Crossposted to several relevant boards here, but to reduce board spamming, I will just add new articles to this thread rather than create a new thread with each post. Hope that helps.

So welcome to "Russian Month", hope you find something interesting to read here :)

Earlier Jaegers .. this lot are a couple of battalions of the 5th Regiment, in their early war uniform :

I love the early Russian uniforms, Jaegers with top hats, and musketeers in inspection colors. Love the 1905 artillery, say ever sneak them into a Napoleonic game? Good job and good luck sorting the troops out.
