    Beautiful set of figures, really like the Hussar though.

    Some mighty fine figures there. Particularly like the pose of the Hussar, very charismatic and typically Hussar-ish (if that's a word)
    I take it the officer, Sapper and Cantiniere can be posed as a group as they all have cups? Will make a nice scene.
    Remarkable work in 54mm scale.

    The Russian hussar figure is interesting in that it portays a woman who passed herself of as a male soldier. The names give it away, all have feminine forms. She had an interesting life, see the Wiki page.

    Oh, I thought he looked a little slender, guess that's why then.

    Nadezhda Durova: after 1807, a cornet in the Mariupol Hussar Regiment, in April 1811 she transferred to the Lithuanian Lancer Regiment, where she served until her retirement in 1816.
    This figurine shows Durova in a hussar uniform with elements from 1810 - thus the figurine compatible with the years 1810-1811.

    At that time, she had the Cross of St. George - an award established for private and non-commissioned officers since 1807. Unlike the officer's Order of St. George, the soldier's cross was entirely silver, without enamel, and was worn on the left side of the chest on a narrow St. George ribbon. When wearing a military uniform, it was supposed to be worn at all times. But for some reason it’s not on the figurine.

    In general, it’s difficult to write about mistakes - there are a lot of them, starting from a shako, and ending with pants and sabretache. The general appearance of an officer of the Mariupol Hussar Regiment in 1810-1814 was like this.
    mariupol officer 001.jpg 001.jpg

    And on the figure the following are incorrectly depicted and/or painted incorrectly: the cockade and round rosette on the shako, the embroidery on the pelisse, the belt of the cartridge box, the fringe around the cords on the chest and around the sewing on the cuffs is missing, the officer’s hussar’s barrel sash and its tassels are painted gold, but there should be silver, the embroidery on the pants, the embroidery on the sabretache should be an officer’s (i.e. eagle), the back of the officer’s sabretache should be red, the scabbard is from a saber of the 1809 model, but the hilt of the saber is from an earlier model for some reason, the swordknot is on there is a sculptural model, but is missing from the painted figurine, and the one that was on the sculptural model is typical for the lower ranks, but the hussar officers wore infantry officer swordknot on their sabers.

    If anyone needs details, you can ask me - I can tell you and show you in more detail separately for each specific detail of the uniform and equipment.

    In any case, it’s nice that the theme of the Russian uniform is sometimes interesting here. )
