Cossack Brigade

Pegasus pigs.

 Cossack infantry. 

Most of the Cossack infantry are Strelets.  I added some more modern weapons.  Flag bearer has an enlarged base so he stands up a little better.

I added a German machine gun.

MG crew are partly Hat figures.

Flag base was too small so I used sheet styrene to make it larger and more stable.

Some of the original figures have had submachine guns and panzerfausts added or substituted for their original weapons.

Pegasus flagpole with a Cossack flag.  Go on line find a flag, print it out, double sided.  Glue together and you have your flag.

The full brigade.

The logistics train helps to keep units in the field.

Children and old people can keep the livestock.

The little wagon started life as a baby cradle, added wheels and instant wagon.

I have German wagons in plastic, resin, and metal, and I mix and match the horses, and drives.  This driver has a dog alongside him.

The green horse is a HaT French Napoleonic wagon horse.

Some of the drivers came from the Revell German Artillery set.

Wagons come from many places, keep your eyes open.  Eastern European wagons are often ornate.
