Hmm, have the figures. Never thought of painting them like this. Like it! Most of mine are still unpainted even.

They look similar to guard Cossacks but my suspicion is these are the works of a singular illustrator who may have been given incomplete or wrong information to work from. Still the Black Sea hosts tended to dress however they liked as most Cossacks had to supply their own horse and weapons (what a deal for the czar eh?) so it's entirely possible entire sotnias were outfitted by wealthy Cossacks achieving some sort of conformity. Thanks for that 2nd link, I'd never seen that page before.
Cheers,

Am not sure if my memory is playing tricks on me but i think i had posted some more piccies of French Cuirassiers which seem to have disappeared. Together with a few nice comments as well. Any chance of this page reappearing or should i repost the photos?
Or is this all just a figment of my imagination, Bennos is still off the air, and I am dreaming all this?
