Dumb question. The translation is indecipherable and highly amusing.

Great castings. Stocky little chaps, but not quite up to traditional Front Rank levels of BMI.

Are they metal or resin….surely not plastic……..too good to be true

That's a rather small gun, isn't it? Looks like a 3-pounder.

Resin in 28mm…

Yes agree stocky guys, but nice sculptures, if they were 15mm I'd mix them into the army.
I'd also think it was a 3pdr

Barrel of a Russian 6-pounder canon had overall length about 68 English inches, so should be about the height of the figure.
It is a canon, not a unicorn – you can tell by the shape of the breech.
The Russians did not use 3-pounder cannons in the era of this uniform.

The wheel should eb 4 feet tall. Looks about right.

Maybe it looks small in comparison to the figures because they're on such thick bases. I've run into that problem before and started putting bits of wood or plastic under the guns to put them on more even ground with the crew.
