Napoleonic Russian (1812) - 13th Light Battery

Post by Greystreak » Fri Jan 18, 2019 5:23 pm

Today's addition to the collection is depicted as the 13th Light Battery in 'summer' dress, from the 7th Division, VI Corps, at Borodino. Breaking slightly from past practice, the figures are 28mm Perry Miniatures (rather than the older Wargames Foundry sculpts by Alan Perry). Only a brigade leader stand remains to be painted in order to complete the project, then it will be on to the additional cavalry support 'options', in the form of two hussar regiments, also using Perry figures. Both the animation and 'scale' of the Perry figures and guns (in particular) are superior to the Foundry versions, so I expect to continue with the twins' work in future.

Comments and critique welcomed, as always. My wife refers to the above as "The Four-Year Battery", since I commenced cleaning and priming the figures in May 2015, before curse of various cancers darkened the door of our home, and put hobby time on the back burner. Hopefully we shall now both continue to be out-of-the-woods for a few years more.

BRYCE!!!

Welcome back my Friend!
What a lovely Battery! And perfectly painted too!
Even without any explanation the pictures of Russian Troops, showing off on a certain Box make's it clear. IT MUST BE YOU! :D
