Greetings, I am hoping to get some help identifying these fellows. They were painted 30 years ago for someone else and are unmarked. To my knowledge it was a historical effort and they appear to be Russian but I haven't been able to find any cavalry in brown like these gentlemen. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you Sho Boki, beautiful work there. I think I was thrown off the scent initially since the figures I came across all had lances and white breeches, but this is certainly who they are supposed to be. Again, great figures there Sho Boki and thank you both for the help!

@ Churlish.
Some Russian hussars were equipped with lancers in 1812/1813.
