Russian Horse Artillery
Some Russian Horse artillery to go with my Russian Cavalry Brigades.
Figures by Lancashire Games, and the guns are a mix of LG's Russian 6lb cannon, and some Eureka Russian SYW period battalion guns.
Here is a zoomed in shot of the 2 Eureka SYW period Russian Battalion Guns.
Note the unusual arrangement of the gun carraige, which includes some sort of railing on the left hand side.
This is presumably to allow the guns to be easily prolonged by musketeers from the supported Battalions.
No idea .... but they do fit in with this lot nicely as battery level Licornes.
If you have a closer look at the helmets and shiny bits on these figures, you can see how I have gone for an overall matte varnish, but then applied some gloss varnish on parts of the uniform to apply a highlight.
The gloss varnish shows off the leather parts of the helmet, whilst leaving the plume in a matte finish. Simple little finishing trick that (I think) works pretty well.
