Here is the completed Kürassier Regiment von Zastrow with my custom flag added. In 1812 the Regiment formed part of Generallieutenant Johann Adolf Freiherr von Thielmann's Brigade, in Général de division Jean-Thomas-Guillaume Lorge 7e division de cuirassiers.
Per Hourtelle, there were 627 effectives in the Regiment at the start of the 1812 Campaign. At the Moscowa, the Regiment fielded about 400 effectives. It is at this reduced strength that the Regiment is depicted here in four squadrons.
The unit was painted by Carl Robson using Eureka 28mm figures.
The von Zastrow's were considered to be one of the finest Heavy Cavalry regiments in Europe. I think Carl has done them justice.
