Four Russian Guns for Suvorov

 Four Russian guns for Suvorov.  Two foot batteries and two horse batteries.  
The foot batteries are composed of Eureka Saxon Napoleonics pressed into service as Russian gunners.  To me, they work well.  Besides fitting the need for early Russian gunners, these Eureka Saxon gunners are splendid sculpts.  Great looking figures with crisp detailing.  I have used Eureka Saxons as Russian gunners, Piedmontese infantry, and French cavalry.  A very versatile group!
The horse gunners and all four guns are from AB Miniatures.  Fine sculpts as expected AB with easy, pre-painting clean-up.  Comparing the two groups of gunners in this display, I prefer the Eureka gunners over AB.  I know, heresy in many places.

    1. Thanks! Well, at least "my" Russian artillery switched from red to green! I guess I better check on that...
