|Does this look too crazy?|
The obvious choice for this would be the forthcoming Warlord Games' "Russian Infantry 1809" plastic set (32 figures £18.00) However, the cheapskate in me is drawn toward Victrix's various Austrian sets each containing enough figures for two 24 man regiments (plus spares) and all for a measly £22.00.
Now of course these sets do not contain any "bottle brush" plumes but I could certainly make a simple push-mould to fabricate these for the Grenadier compliment. With this in mind I created a couple of crude mock-ups showing the figures with such plumes but I am stumped as to which looks better.
|Shakos with bottle brush - more plausible?|
Please remember the painting in these pictures is immaterial as these troops would be in the traditional B-S yellow.
As a footnote, the final plume may be a tad larger as these look a little insipid.
