Russian cuirassiers

Posted by Bendy_Straw on 31 Jul 2021, 16:49

Hello. I am ready to start painting some Russian cuirassiers, and I want to paint them as the Military Order cuirassiers, but I don't know what the colours of the standard and the trumpeter are. Can anyone provide me with any reference pics? Thanks in advance

Trumpeters lace was in regimental colours. For Order Cuirassieurs - orange-black.
Mounted one on picture.

Standards were one white and four colored (black) ones.
Some sources say, that all colored standards in Russian Cavalry were green, but they may talk about Dragoons only.
