I finished the painting of a second group of 12 RSM Russian Cossacks that I have mounted on Minden light cavalry horses. This gives me two groups of 12, or 24 figures.

Check out my blog for more pictures and story telling:

Interesting. I would have thought that the RSM were significantly smaller than Minden.

If you keep hoarding them, soon you will have a horde of them. Of course, being Cossacks, all of them have Bleeped textd.

A perfectly good rhyme bleeped! All of them have visited naughty ladies.

Nikator, A perfect trio of homophones ruined by the bleep-o-matic!

Very nice. Russian armies need a lot of Cossacks to ride around looking for soft targets.

Yes, you can't have a Russian army without hoards of the useless blighters. Just so long as the rules keep the freebooting good for nothings in there place, which is usually out of it – if memory serves, when Frederick and a handful of regular cavalry rode across the battlefield (after Zorndorf) in the general direction of 500+, they ran away.

is it a hoard of figures, or a horde of cossack?

Herd of cattle?
Sure I've heard of cattle!
