Nice Cossaks! The image appears sideways for me.  Upside-down I could understand.  ;)

Wow, it seems, this is the first time I see on the figures the white strip on the cap-band of the cap that is characteristic of the Don Army!
Excellent job in painting, and outstanding in the study of the prototype)))

Thank you Cuprum the Pygmy Wars website has been invaluable.

 one small question what sort of miniatures would be suitable for Kalmyks serving in the Don Host? I'm thinking either just using Copplestone White Cossacks with Kalmyk colours or the Copplestone Chahar Mongols( mainly because they have shoulderboards)

A Kalmuk cavalry squadron, at Rostov in the Don Territory, September 1918.


Kalmyks initially had a uniform, like the Don Cossacks, but with the replacement of scarlet in yellow. Later they received a uniform of the British sample.

They had very interesting national-style banners:

 Thank you Cuprum for the information  regarding Kalmyk uniforms, those flags are beautiful, I look forward to trying to replicate them.

These are two sides of one banner - the third Kalmyk regiment, formed in the summer of 1918.
