The force I chose to build this time was the Rievski's 7th Corps(Kolubakin's 12th and Paskievitch's 26th Divisions) at Borodino . I also chose 2 grenadier regiments to build from the Prince of Mecklenburg's Grenadier division. also, for the battle, the Ahktyrka Hussar regiment was detached from Sievers 4th Reserve Cavalry Corps, along with the 8th light(horse) artillery Company.
The regiments are listed in order of seniority inside the division. This is important because the epaulettes on Russian uniforms were colored different colours for the seniority in the divisions: red for 1st, white for second, yellow for 3rd and light green lined red for 4th. each division also includes 2 Jager regiments, but they were never issued standards. Jager epaulettes were pale yellow or light blue, based on seniority again. All grenadier epaulettes were red.
Paskievitch's 26th Infantry Division
Jagers: 5th and 42nd Regiments
Artillery: 26th Heavy , 47th & 48th Light Companies

I'll be working on the 26th Division first.
I still have Sievers 4th cavalry Corps from alst time i build (and then sold) a Russian army. i picked the infantry corps before i started researching so i had not yet realized teh obvious(hussar) connection between these 2 corps(they also were on the same part of the battlefield at Borodino).
I also Still have 3 battalions of a the Preobrajanski Guard Regiment, Guard Artillery, Guard Jagers, and the Emperor's(guard) Curiassier Regiment. Also have 5 battalions of Foundry Opelchinie(3 painted, 2 in the queue), 2 of which are pike armed.
Very very nice!!!ReplyDelete
Have generic flags in my VII Corps: my head started to ache working out what the 'correct' flags might be. Good job!ReplyDelete
Fantastic flags! You are the only person on the net who has publicly posted flags like these (apart from Napflags which are a little outdated( and new my Russian armies will finally get the flags they deserve!ReplyDelete
no problem. I had similar problems which is why I've done this. i i said in the blog, I can make other regimental flags, as long as they fit into one of the existing patterns( IE just different colours. Email me at crucible_orc*AT*hotmail*DOT*com, and i'll see what I can do.ReplyDelete
