Russian artillery limbers

Here are several new limbers for my artillery batteries. These first two are gun limbers, the drivers being from the Zvezda artillery set, and the limbers proper from the Hat french limber set.

These two below are ammunition caissons, everything from the Zvezda russian artillery set.

Last, the horse artillery limbers, again using limbers from the french kit from Hat Industries. The drivers are Hat russian dragoons, with their crests properly trimmed to represent late war uniforms. Their swords were also trimmed, twisted and painted as to represent lashes, and their poses suggest the limber is in full gallop!

The horse artillery guns and crew is subject of another post. I managed to find a good option in resin, since there is none in plastic 1/72, and they're are currently on the queue for a chance to get painted.
