25mm Foundry Moscow Militia Part 2

I've been talking about making an 1812 Russian retreat skirmish game forever and have been collecting bits and pieces for it for a long time. This is the first completed part with a much bigger part coming once the glue dries ...

I'll have a few proper 10 man units of Opelchenie in there but these are the extras I used to try out some ideas. 

To explain why these five aren't in the regular Russian army I gave them all gray or white hair to indicate they were too old to serve any longer.
One of the harder parts to execute effectively was the snow. I wanted a slushy muddy road and it took a fair amount of trial and error to get it satisfactory. I believe I'll have a tutorial on it later, stay tuned!

Thanks for looking - questions, comments and followers are welcome and encouraged!

  1. Wow - superb painting on figures I'd not expect to see in colors like that. They look great & sounds like a great scenario. Regards, Dean
