The Russian OOB – Montmirail

The research for the Russian OOB is largely done already by Louis Berlange’s outstanding website.

I checked as many other sources as I could readily locate, and basically made some strength estimates of around 500 men per battalion.  I like 18-figure battalions, as 3 stands allows for easy identification of units in Line, Column and Square.  That means 2 ranks of 3 figures for each stand, which allows me to put a Standard in the center of the French and Prussian battalions, and then an officer and standards on each side of him for the Russian foot.  It puts me at 28 men per figure, and I like to be close to 3 figures per 100.

So on to the Russian OOB.  This is based on Sacken’s OOB as shown in official records for January 2, 1814.

Overall Command:  Lt. Gen. Osten-Sacken + 2 ADCs (Note that the highest level of command has 2 ADCs on his stand, next level 1 ADC, and lowest level just the mounted Leader)
Chief of Staff:  Colonel Benançon
Quarter Master: Colonel Count Rochechouart.
Artillery Command: Maj. Gen. Nikitine.
