Excellent Work!

Yea, nicer than any 25s I've ever done.

ernieR – I don't black line them, I undercoat them black and leave a bit of black showing, it's much easier I can assure you. Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated.

Very nice!

Tell us about your basing method.

It's described on the blog, follow the link above and scroll through the pages.

Very nicely done indeed. The rest of the pics on your blog are worth a look – I liked the Opolochine unit and its banner man especially.

Not sure if Desert Fox was asking about construction techniques for your bases or about figure/size choices (or possibly both!) but I would very much like to know what static grass you used, as I struggle to find really bright grass and liked the look of what you had done.

Mr Cossack guy, two colours of Woodland Scenics static grass flock. The yellower shade is 'Harvest Gold' don't know the greener shade's name though – I decanted it!

Thanks for that – good tip about the yellow, and will experiment with some combinations from WS on that basis.

As an expression of my gratitude will instruct cossacks to leave your sheep alone – but they seem to have a limited capacity to follow orders…

As an ex Northumbrian farmer my Geordie sheep would have nowt to fear from your cossacks mate – well hard!!!

Probably right. Their last performance on the battle field suggests they would flee at the sight of your +1 sheep.

Very Nice !

very impressive, the batteries look great – I like that you included train we well.

Agree. Even a couple of limbers transforms the scene. Actually looks like a gun "battery" or whatever.

When you see a complete artillery park it is incredible to see the footprint required

Markconz05 Jan 2018 11:32 p.m. PST

Very nicely done!

Lovely work. I' very tempted to use 10mm for General d'armee.
