Presenting the First 16 Luebecker Musketeers!
A simpler paint job than I have been used to doing, but I must say I like the look. . . although the black-lining is a killer! Certainly not museum quality painting, but it's a trade-off I'm willing to make after those Minden hussars. And guess what? I have chosen to ignore minor mistakes, figuring (ha, ha) that if I don't notice it, no one else will either. Liberating to say the least. It's amazing how many photos you must take just to get one that is not blurry.
Next in line, a couple of officers on foot, a standard-bearer, and an NCO, who still needs his two-coat white basecoat. Afterwards, I'll address the mounted colonel by himself before continuing on to the next company of 16 musketeer privates. Rock and roll!
