Having received enough bits to create 24 plastic cavalry from my mate Adrian, I have decided to do four different squadrons for maximum interest. In the BLB basing format, a squadron is two 60mm x 60mm bases with three cavalry figures per base - thus, I have enough figures for four different squadrons. Unfortunately, either Adrian or I have misplaced one constructed cavalry figure, as I received 12 figures on untouched sprues, plus 12 assembled horses but only have 11 assembled riders. I have a feeling when I originally unpacked the carton, all 12 assembled riders were present, but I could be wrong....so, one squadron is likely to comprise only 5 figures.....but it's not this one!

First GNW Russian Cavalry Squadron
As mentioned above, these figures had already been assembled by Adrian - I probably would not have had them all pistol armed, but on the other hand, the Russian cavalry is all old-style shooting cavalry in BLB so maybe it is appropriate? Officer and two troopers of the Sheremetevs Life Squadron above.
Second stand is the standard bearer and two other pistol packing troopers.
Several more images of both stands together follow.
Thats all for tonight - time for me to head back to the garage where the Galitski infantry regiment is about 75% complete - they will most likely be the next unit to grace this post. Until then, hope all is well with you all and that you are getting in plenty of hobby time!
