I'm launching my 2016 project with the rest of 1st Battalion, Reval Infantry Regiment; 28mm metal miniatures by Wargames Foundry, flags by GMB, and mounted on Warbases.

During the campaign of 1812, a solder of the Reval Regiment captured the fanion of 1st Voltigeurs of the (Young) Guard at the Battle of Krasnoi (17 November 1812).

More photos here as usual: http://jannersjaunt.blogspot.dk/2016/01/1st-battalion-reval-infantry-regiment.html

The second and third companies have been painted by Steve Hall of Hallmark Figure Painting Service, leaving me with the first (command) and elite companies.

These are lovely, great work.
As you ask for feedback I like silvery bayonets as opposed to the "bolt gun metal" variety! 

Also dry brush the black plumes with some grey to highlight. But these are just personal opinions.
Keep up the good work,
jj

Next up are some skirmishing jägers - foundry miniatures with the odd head-swap to bring in some shakos.

I'm not planning of doing stands for all four companies in a battalion at the moment as it seems to me that they usually keep some elements in close order as supports. However, I may add skirmishing elite companies in due course.

More fine work, Stephen! image

I'm pretty sure that the GdB rules suggest only 50% of a Russian Jaeger battalion may breakdown into skirmishers, with the remainder 'formed' in support.

The first of my brigade commanders:

image

In early 1812, Pavel Alekseyevich Tuchkov had command of a brigade in 3 Infantry Division within his brother, Nikolay’s III Infantry corps. Known in most sources as Tuchkov III, in the face of the French invasion, he commanded 1st Western Army’s rearguard as it withdrew to Smolensk and was dispatched to hold the critical road junction at Valutina Gora (Lubino). He was captured late in the day whilst leading a counter attack by the Ekaterinoslav Grenadier Regiment, having received a bayonet wound to the abdomen and a number of sword cuts to the head.

Lots more on Tuchkov III here, as well as extra photos: http://jannersjaunt.blogspot.dk/2016/02/tuchkov-iii.html
