I'm glad to see you once more ! :-D

Bessiere, the pontoons and wagons are in plastic and coming from HAT but the two pontoon boats on wagons are white metal, bought so many years ago that I can't remenber who made it, maybe "fine scale factory" but I'm not sure.

The next set of figures (I also bought them many years ago) for this project is the Russian artillery from Zvezda (including one set of their “art of tactic” range) and some battlefield accessories from Italeri, there’s 28 guns, 15 wagons and limbers, 24 horses, 160 artillery crew and gunners (from the guard and the line artillery)

The base color for all the artillery and wagons is Tamiya XF5 flat green.
Starting with the figures.
Painted with a Tamiya white base, the trouser received a black wash and a Vallejo white drybrush.
Men on horses have a Vallejo 70992 neutral grey with black wash and drybrush (Grey mixed with 40% white).
The jacket is Vallejo 70970 deep green with wash and drybrush.
The buttons on the white trouser are underlined with a Rotring or Staedler (0,3mm) pencil, and covered by Vallejo matt varnish to fix it.
The guard artillery has black boots instead of black shoes for the line, and the boots have plenty of gold buttons (Vallejo Laiton 70801) on the side.
Collar, epaulette, sleeves, back of the jacket : every detail is painted in white first and then covered with red Vallejo 70909.
There’s 3 buttons on each sleeves : Vallejo 70801 Laiton.

Next update will be about the Saint Basil's cathedral.

Great to see that you are back from the nice and sunny weather! :-D A great effort already and it will just get better. I find a little resembalnce between the artillery guys and Dupond & Dupont, maybe you have their ancestors ... Really looking to see more of this massive scene (it must be with all that you have showed us). Go on!
