The last three units are now done. These are 4 cohorts of the Saint Petersburg Opolochenie, the converged Cuirassier regiment and the double strength Polish Uhlan regiment.
Painting these took less time than researching online their uniform details. With three different sources I was able to piece together the uniform for the Polish Uhlan regiment; most of this being text than illustrations. The converged Cuirassier regiment represented three different regiments and I decided to keep things simple and plump for a generic paint job; in place of three different uniforms, I chose one.
The Opolochenie were a breeze to do, but the challenge was to add a bit of sparkle to an otherwise mundane colour scheme; grey.
I like the poses for them and though classed as militia, they did sterling work at the Second Battle of Polotsk.
In total, 18 elements are added to Wittgenstein’s 1st corp. Next step will take care of additional units for Oudinot’s II Corps, namely St. Cyr’s Bavarian corps (VI).
