Nova Hungaria - the Ruslanders arrive


The first Ruslander reinforcements to land in Nova Hungaria are the Blackguards of Countess Svetlana Ivanovna and a company of the Naval Brigade.
The figures are of the mixed bunch I received last December, painted up to be substitutes for Yanks if I ever want to game the ACW. 



The Blackguards are not necessarily bad guys (they are), but simply bodyguards of the Countess wearing black. I've used dark grey colors and black shade go get this effect. 


The company has a lot of surplus officers: they are going to train and lead a native force as the reinforcements from the mainland are scarce.


The marine company is made up from two sub-units, most likely understrength platoons, of nine, with the best shooters as designated marksmen with rifles on the flanks, a company commander and an NCO.

    1. Glad you like them - they're from three different sets, though.

  2. Very nice, these boys in blue! :D The bearded fellow reminded me of a great Southerner - Gen. Stonewall Jackson :) Cheers!

    1. Thank you! From the Southern side, I like Lee more. The figure is just a generic officer, but I think I have some personality figures.
