Napoleonic Russian against Prussians and Poles

It's been awhile since my last post.  I was busy finishing up a large commission of Bavarians and then painting up another brigade of Napoleonic Prussians for myself.  I have finished both and I was eager to get my full Prussian corp out on the table.  I allied them with my Duchy of Warsaw division for an invasion of Russian territory.  I have played out the first four turns and the Prussians/Poles are having a very rough time of it.  Those darn Russian guns are more than formidable!  But a Prussian cavalry brigade has destroyed a brigade of Russian cossacks, threatening the Czar's right flank.  But this tactic is taking time to develop, costing the lives of scores of Prussian infantry.  Here are a few pictures:

Here it is a regiment of dragoons that are getting a face-full of lead.

I am off to dinner with my daughter, but hope to make more progress in the battle tomorrow.  Thanks for taking a look.  Comments are welcome and appreciated!
