|Elite Miniatures Russian Grenadiers ready for a good bayonet charge!|
It has been quite hectic work wise lately and though I have still found some time to spend an hour or so at the painting desk, it has proved difficult to post anything on the blog.
However rest assured that I have not been slack in my efforts and the ongoing 1805-07 project, and specifically the Russian element of it, has continued to progress.
The Smolensk Regiment, of which I had last month completed the one Musketeer battalion, has been the focus of my attention. These were part of Miladoravich's IV Column and fought strongly with the Austrian elements against the French General Van Damme around the surrounds of the Pratzen.
|The chaos in technicolour which is my painting desk!|
|A not so good photo of a newly painted brigade command stand|
|Two more new command stands once again proving that my photographic skills...or lack of...is at the |
very least wonderfully consistent!
|The figure in the white uniform is absolutely inspired by Prince Andrei Nikolayevich Bolkonsky one of the|
main characters of Tolstoys "War and Peace".

Next will be the final basing of this battalion, the last remaining bits and pieces of the two Russian batteries and then another command stand.
Getting there slowly.
