Russia: supply train (I)

As for the Prussian army already built, now the Russians also got a supply train with grenades, powder and bred. I looked for the original colours of the Russian carriages and found in Russian sources more a brown-red for the statical parts and a dirty white for the upper parts. So, I weathered and bleached them for giving the impression of a long, hard summer campaign visible at the material.
The miniatures are from Matthias-Manske, one carriage is modified by myself with polystyrene boards. The barrel and nosebag are from Stronghold-Terrain (resin).
In the background Russian grenadiers advancing to the front.


  1. Absolutely beautiful work, sir. I am amazed at the superb quality of your painting and diorama setups.

    Just splendid!

  2. A wonderful piece of work. It looks very realistic.

  3. Le chariot à lui tout seul valait un très beau post, il est vraiment magnifique, j'aime beaucoup les couleurs très réalistes...Mais de plus, tu as su le mettre en valeur par des photos somptueuses, comme d'habitude...on s'y croirait!
    Un grand espoir, que le (I) du titre nous laisse voir un aussi beau (II), qui sait?
    Bravo Peter, vraiment bravo!

  4. I like your work very much and am fascinated by the way you set your miniatures into scene every time.

  5. The most realistic diaramas on the net! Absolutely great...
