Napoleon's ~ Retreat from Moscow 1812 ~ 28mm figures help

Post by Lepic » Sun Mar 25, 2018 2:03 pm

hi

am looking for to 28mm figures specifically for napoleons retreat from moscow 1812

so was wondering if anyone had any information or suggestions where i can get them other than perrys french ~ russian ranges
Image

i found some at Murawski Miniatures
Image

especially looking for sledge guns
Image
Image
Image
i found these available from Black Hussar who took Over Westfalia and triangle miniatures

also found some sledge wheel sets from as well triangle miniatures
Image

best figures ~ commanders for Vignettes winter dress only suggestions please
can i also ask would it matter if the Vignettes figures scale size was larger than the rest of the tabletop figures scale size used (personal choice)and is there any restrictions for the size base used
as within 54mm there are perfect figures available which i would like 2 use ~ for example

You can use any scale of figures you want with SP. However, I think it might look a little odd to mix 54mm vignettes with 28mm figures but that's up to you.
I certainly wouldn't use them in an active role in the game.

john

Kalmyk or Kalmuck ~ tatar ~ bashkir cossacks
Image
tatars and bashkirs were nomadic horsemen who served as irregular cavalry of the Russian army. They carried more antiquated weapons and equipment than the cossacks, including the composite bow
Image
there seems to be no dedicated models for Napoleonic Kalmyk ~ Tatars or Bashkirs
thinking to try to use Mongolian figures maybe tbc
Image
fireforge 28mm ~ Mongol Golden Horde
Image
if anyone knows where i can find any dedicated models or anything that can be used or even converted to be used please let me know

thanks

resolved ~ will need to be scratch built as yet cannot find any models for them
an old russian signpost or milepost
the russians had a state postal service from the time of Peter the Great and suspect that the signs were for those riders
images are from the old smolensk road
