Almost Finished with Cuirassier Regimental Staff. . .
The colonel, his staff, and their respective mounts are looking rather dashing if I do say so myself. Whoops! The trumpeter's lace should be yellow/gold instead of white. Well, it's not like it will take a long time to fix it this evening after dinner.Got in a good hour of painting last night before enjoying another two episodes of Ugly Betty on DVD with the Grand Duchess (the recently issued 3rd Season). The above photo shows where we stand now with the first three of 30 RSM95 Austrian cuirassier figures. Another evening or two to complete the final and inevitable touch-ups -- plus attach the regimental flag to its pole and paint it -- and the colonel Freiherr Heinrich von Heide along with his staff are all finished. Then, it's time to quit fooling around and tackle that first squadron of the regiment: one officer and eight troopers.
