These are the first batch of units for a large 28mm Napoleonic Russian Commission for Gunter Heim (you may have seen his article in Wargames Illustrated issue 330 April 2015 which was about his amazing collection of Napoleonic Saxons).
For the Russians Gunter has commissioned Hart of War to paint Prince Tchervatov's 18th Division of 1812 - a total of 8 infantry battalions, 4 Jaeger battalions and 3 battalions of converged grenadiers. Plus the Pavlograd Hussars. Pictured in this post are the 1st and 3rd battalions of the Vladimir and Tambov Infantry Regiments.
The figures, like the Saxons in the WI article, are made by Steve Barber Models and they are really nice figures to paint.
Gunter regularly publishes progress updates on the League of Augsburg forum 'Fighting Talk'.
