Monster Fusilier Regiment Nears Completion -- Austrian Cuirassiers Stand at the Ready!!!
Yep, you read it right. After a fit of activity early yesterday morning and late this afternoon, all of the mid-blue facings on the fourth and final company of the 7th Von Flickenhoffer's Fusiliers are finished. All that remains are the black gaiter buttons and the metal trim on the fusilier caps. Then two coats of Future/Klear acrylic floor finish and tally ho!
Afterward, it's on to those thirty or so RSM95 curiassiers that have been sitting in formation on the ol' painting table for oh so many months. Jim "Alte Fritz" Purky isn't the only one who is going to be painting Austrian heavy cavalry, though mine won't have the lovely blue facings of his Alt Modena Regiment that's currently in-progress up at Chez Fritz. By the way, click on Jim's Hesse-Seewald link at right to ogle several recent photographs of the Minden cuirassiers that he is using for his aformentioned Alt Modena Regiment. The initial squadron is stunning.
Ok! Fusilier photos coming tomorrow or Sunday. Tune in again then!
