Russian church, painted

Guilt hit me like a fist as I took a step back from the architectural nightmare I just painted.  All wrong. In my defence, it did not spend much detailed effort on the affair, knowing it ain't going to be true in any event. Serves me right starting by using a toilet roll tube as a support, eh?  However I guess I have seen worse on the tabletop without much discourse.   However, for me the "good scale" of it to the miniatures is actually a bit large for the ground scale.  If I have time I might do the actual Borodino Church.

    1. Fine for me the wargamer, but not very accurate for the historian in me. Ah well.

      Thanks for the encouragement.

  2. Great looking "onion dome", Doug. A few more in various colors would be lovely - as in this pic https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/30/St_Basils_Cathedral_closeup.jpg

    1. Yes THE image of the Russian church - and the only example of its type that I found is that at St. Basil in Moscow! (your link)

    1. Very 'generic' and certainly not the one of Borodino, but for the wargaming table it probably will do.
      Thanks once again for the kind comment, James!
