A little report from the Carronade show yesterday in Falkirk..

While checking E bay for interesting warames figures, I came across a unit (from Stuart asquith's collection) Labelled russian PULTAVA guards, they were Front Rank Pavlovski grenadiers but painted light blue with red facings and a red flag with a bear. i never came across this unit in any Napoleonic OOb. Is this a real unit that I missed all this time, or is it a fictivious unit? Hope some members can shed some light on this matter. Thanks

Imagi-nation? The only reference I have to a Pultavskii regiment is one that was formed in the 1600s (disbanded 1775) consisting of Cossacks and peasants.

These may be not Pultava but Poltava grenadiers.
Not actual unit, but just imaginational grenadiers for Poltava battle, as uniform was different.

If memory serves the wonderful "Charge!" Rules make mention of this very unit!

Thanks for the reactions,I must have these Charge rules here somewhere, buried in some box…
I also tend to believe this is not an historical unit I never came across but rather inspired by Imagine Nations. So I will not place a bid, even though they look nice and "differen" from the rest of the Russian army.

Marcal at Austerlitz and Eylau the Russian grenadiers would have had Mitre hats like the Pavlovs as standard but with different coloured backing and facings according to parent unit.
