Możajsk/Moscow/Бородинское сражение

Posted by FatFather on 23 Aug 2017, 15:15

Hi,
Few years ago I made some hundreds figures of napoleonic wars. I needed this for my work, for historian education. After this, I put napoleonic figures for ling distance from me.
Now I have idea to make dio with tbe south part of this battle. Reason is simply: there were in fighting polish troops. But this battle is interesting for one more reason. At historian conference in Kaliningrad/Koenigsberg I was in long discussion about why for Russians is the battle of Borodino, for French - Moscow, and Poles - Możajsk. It was funny and nice talking people in chaince of political corectness :-D .
I started painting from Russians jeagers.
Image
I used figures of Italeri and Zvezda. I hope orthodox don't kill me for using Italeri set to make jeagers.

Nice painted figures.

I know it named as battle of Borodino.

If you are hit at the same place your face would look not photogenic too.

Wiking--my face never looks good no matter what angle it is photographed from. What am I doing wrong?

FF--I like your Russians for Borodino.

Good luck with your project to recreate the Napoleonic battle. Figures are nicely painted. We are all striving to improve our skill set. You'll learn a lot here in this forum. Enjoy. Bill

Hi,
After a long time between "crusaders" in 28 mm. I came back to Możajsk. Now, I have pleasure to present you my Tsar Guard Grenadiers.

Walking on battle field. I think, I should repair trousers of officer. Grey wash on white, something to train.
Image
At back side. It will be parts of attacking on bayonets and shooting too. Pavlovs grenadiers, and more Russians troops.
Image
But the first, I will start to paint Polish troops.
Thx for watching.

Fine looking figures, and... I can see that flag rippling in the breeze, that's astonishing! :drool:
