RSM "Leib (Grand Duchess Sonja's Own) Grenadiers" FINISHED!!!

Yes, you read it right gentlemen! They are all finished, excepting the clear protective coat, which will have to wait until after I return in mid-June. Can’t believe the day (late evening) is finally here! The Grand Duchess Sonja won’t believe it either!

The top photo shows Company C all done while the bottom shows the entire regiment in formation (loose files), complete with Colonel von Spasticus and the color party at the head of the regiment and an officer plus several NCO’s, including Oberfeldwebel Klatschen at the far right, in the rearmost rank.

And now, I’ve got hit the sack. I have an early shuttle up to O’Hare in the morning. See you in a few days!

They are splendid looking chaps indeed. May their combat record be as sharp as their looks.

Hi Stokes,

V impressive unit. I have been beavering away at my Revell Prussian infantry and I am in the middle of converting a regiment from one of the fairly useless 'skipping' grenadier poses. Someone on the Old School site suggested straightening the horizontal leg to make a decent looking advancing regiment. The mitres have been chopped off and tricornes added. The gaps are tided up with modelling filler. I will do the grenadier company at the same time.

Also just noticed on the Plastic Soldier Review site that HAT are bringing out a couple of boxes which may be of use to your project in their 1806 Prussian range - hussars and dragoons. I have been searching for some time for sufficient boxes of the Revell SYW Hussars without success and I am unwilling to pay the pretty spectacular e-bay prices for the odd box which comes up. I am becoming a little impatient waiting for Revell to re-release them. I will buy a box when they are released to investigate whether they can be pressed into action. The strict uniform brigade may splutter into their drinks but needs must when...
