Hello,

Are there any 15mm makers of Polish troops for the Polish-Russian War of 1792?

There used to be some from Falcon Figures, but to my knowledge they are no longer in business.

Also, could Bavarian infantry be used for Lithuanian troops?

Thanks,
Brian

It's not a big range but try these.

At present, there are no miniatures for the Russo-Polish War of 1792. FFUK, Uprising and QR have either gone under (FFUK and Uprising) or stopped making them because the molds were worn out (QR). The link that Billy NM posted is out of date. I know the owner of QR and I doubt he'll be producing the 1792 Poles and Russians anytime soon.

Me, the late Dan Schorr and a friend of his paid for the FFUK line to be made and I've begged and pleaded with Kai to at least sell me that part of the FFUK catalog (along with the 1788 Russians and Swedes that I contracted out when FFUK was in Canada), but, no dice.

Russians are fairly easy – at least the infantry. Miniature Figurines 15mm Danish Nap. grenadiers. You could also do head swaps using their Danish Nap. artillery crew to get your artillery. The cavalry would be the problem but I guess you could do head swaps with the Nap. Danish dragoons and that would provide you with the cavalry. Again, all using the Miniature Figurines Nap. Danish grenadiers. For the mtd. jaegers, I would use either head swaps or Miniature Figurines French Rev. British dragoons in mirliton. You'll have to cut off the sabertache but they'll work.

Lithuanians are fairly easy – at least, for the line infantry and artillery. Line infantry – Danish Nap. bodies with Bavarian helmet heads. Artillery – same – Danish Nap. crew bodies with Bavarian helmet heads. Light infantry – you could use Miniature Figurines AWI American Marines – not exactly right, but close enough. The problem are the officers of the line and lights, who wore the czapka. I've used the Magister Millitum 15mm French Rev. Austrian lancer heads, as they are in the right headgear.

Polish/Lithuanian cavalry – there are 2 types that you need: cadre, lancers (towarzysz) and troopers (pocztowy). The officers and standard bearers wore the same uniform as the lancers and the buglers wore the same uniform as the troopers (with color differences, of course). Therefore, you need those two types – lancers and troopers. Troopers – again, Miniature Figurines French Rev. British dragoons in mirliton work (again, shave off the sabertache), as do their Homspech's Rifles in the same range. Most Nap. uhlans/lancer czapkas are too high for officers/lancers but, the Magister Millitum French Rev. Austrian lancers are spot on for lancers and officers. Again, you'll have to do head swaps to get officers, standard bearers and buglers but, at least you can make them.

And, no – I'm not endorsing any particular line of miniatures. There might be others I'm unaware of but these are the lines that I used to get some of my units on the table.

If you want pics of my Polish/Lithuanian and Russian armies for this period, drop me a line at:

I've also got tons of source material.

Jan Czop's plates about Polish Army are so elegant and beautiful that I have great temptation to sculpt some of these troops.

Sho Boki,

You make some damn nice sculpts! If you ever decide to do some, please drop me a line and I'll be happy to share what I've got. Czop's plates are fairly accurate and it would be a great army to do but you'll also have to do Potemkin Russians, as they are OOP as well.

Thanks! :-)
I did Suvorov in Italy Russian Line Infantry (Jδgers and Cavalry will follow), next project in this line will be Suvorov against Ottomans – these same Potemkin uniforms. So Ottomans and Poles will be their natural opponents.

Sho Boki,

Don't forget the Swedes, as well! They battled the Potemkin Russians of the period (Russo-Swedish War 1788-1790).

I've got info on them as well. ;)

von Winterfeldt26 Jun 2022 6:09 a.m. PST

Sho, please produce before all those needed command miniatures, as for Austrian – or French.

Sho Boki Sponsoring Member of TMP26 Jun 2022 8:29 a.m. PST

Don't worry, VW. I have these Czop plates couple of years, this is distant future project in my mind but on some day it will be done. I just finished two doll moulds with French-British troopers and other dolls now so some production moulds will be done next.
Also I resculpt my old Murat's set for my new horses.
