3rd Russian Division c.1812

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Great! Face. What colors did you use?

The last one is just what a Russian grenadier should look like.

I'm launching my 2016 project with the rest of 1st Battalion, Reval Infantry Regiment; 28mm metal miniatures by Wargames Foundry, flags by GMB, and mounted on Warbases.

Image

During the campaign of 1812, a solder of the Reval Regiment captured the fanion of 1st Voltigeurs of the (Young) Guard at the Battle of Krasnoi (17 November 1812).

More photos here as usual: http://jannersjaunt.blogspot.dk/2016/01 ... iment.html

The second and third companies have been painted by Steve Hall of Hallmark Figure Painting Service, leaving me with the first (command) and elite companies.

Are you going to do the full division? 12 battalions?

I believe so. Read through the first lines in his blog

http://jannersjaunt.blogspot.dk/2016/01 ... -2016.html

There he explains what will be included for 2016.
My project is frozen in staying at 8 Battalions as my painter head some serious health issues and is now recovering.

Btw., Loveley looking Battalions Stephen!

Günter

Yes, the full division of twelve battalions with aspirations to add the two composite battalions and, perhaps, a four battalion grenadier brigade from the sister division in the corps.

Next up are some skirmishing jägers - foundry miniatures with the odd head-swap to bring in some shakos.

Image

I'm not planning of doing stands for all four companies in a battalion at the moment as it seems to me that they usually keep some elements in close order as supports. However, I may add skirmishing elite companies in due course.

It looks as if the Russians we raise are making a good progress :D

Wasn't the headswap something Bryce did with his Russians too?

Yours are real nice little buggers :wink:

Those look very nice indeed, Stephen, and the freehand numbers on the cartridge pouches look great! I sympathise entirely with the challenge of head-swapping for shakos, but I couldn't stand to have them all wearing shapkas either. :)
