I've just finished the first part of a long awaited project of mine, napoleonic personalities and headquarters. These here are the russian Headquarters, and amongst them, a lot of personalities.
Strelets has done a handful of command models for each major power of the napoleonic wars, often combined in sets of 2 nations (British and Austrian; Russian and Prussian). The french received 2 full kits of personalities.
Those kits are currently out of production, but most can still be found quite often on ebay. I managed to grab one of each, including the very rare dismounted french staff, which cost me a small fortune (!).
No set has more historical personalities than the russian one, which is understandable, given that Strelets is a russian company. These russians are some of the best sculpted headquarters from Strelets' adventure into that venue.
I put (mostly) one personality per base, and named each for easy reference. I used a handful of other models from Zvezda, Hat and Italeri to help "set the scene" of each command base.
Finally, the Tsar. Note the pavlovski grenadier on the back. It's a conversion I did using an Italeri head on a Zvezda body, to create a late war uniformed grenadier of that regiment. Now that I see that it works and looks perfect, I'll be doing a full battalion of those corverts in the near future -I realised I have enough Italeri heads to execute such project.
The Tsar is accompanied by the Quartermaster Volkonsky.
