And Introducing Oberfeldwebel Lebrecht Klatschen!
I also took a few minutes to finish up the first RSM 95 figure -- Oberfeldwebel (Regimental Sergeant Major) Lebrecht Klatschen of the Leib (Grand Duchess Sonja's Own) Grenadier Regiment at your service! He has a great deal of character, I think, as an R.S.M. should of course. Naturally, Sergeant Major Klatschen is extremely fond of fresh coffee, a good chat, and his clay pipe full of strong tobacco. Curious peasant girls aren't too shabby either from his point of view.
Now, all I need to do is repeat this about 65 times. I've decided to paint the regiment by companies, so the initial batch will be the first company of 19 figures plus a five figure regimental staff, including a mounted colonel, standard bearer, and three different officers on foot. Stay tuned right here to see how they shape up!
