Leib Grenadiers Underway

Hey there all you regular Grand Duchy of Stollen visitors! Yes, I'm back in the saddle and hard at work on the RSM95 figures, soon to be the Leib (Grand Duchess of Sonja's Own) Grenadier Regiment.

So far, I've only managed to paint the bases green and the coats light blue on the first 24 figures. You can see how it's going from the accompanying photograph at right.

In the next few painting sessions, I intend to paint the faces, white wigs, red small clothes, and red facings (liight blue for the company drummer at the rear). White gaiters for all will follow.

As many have metnoned ove at Yahoo's Old School Wargaming discussion board, RSM figures really are a pleasure to paint. Can't remember when painting seemed to progress so easily. I think it was during the very early 1980s, when I was painting chunky old Grenadier 25mm D&D figures and making up a different painting scheme for each figure. Ah, memories. . .

By the way, there have now been over 6800 visits to The Grand Duchy of Stollen since last August. I think the Grand Duke Irwin Amadeus II should seriously consider setting up a board of tourism! Seriously though, a sincere and hearty "thank you" to all who have taken an interest in the goings on here in Stollen and regularly take a few minutes to drop by. It's much appreciated.

Welcome back! I have missed reading your posts . . . and I'm sure that others have as well.

Looking forward to future reports on this unit and your experiences as you paint them.

Welcome back indeed. I look forward to seeing more of your work as it progresses.

Also, you'll find a reply to Stollen from our last correspondence about 3 posts down on the Engelburg blog.

You should read Jeff's comments on it too. :>

Hi Stokes,

Good to see those RSMs are progressing nicely!

I'm not familiar with that standard-bearer; which range is he from? I'd like to get my paws on some.
