Presenting the Anspach-Bayreuth Kuirassiere!!!

Here they are, with the rearmost nine figures still drying, three squadrons of the Anspach-Bayreuth Kuirassiere, now in the service of the Grand Duchy of Stollen. And now, it's onto that artillery!

You're right, the Future really does punch up the red. An impressive unit, Sir Stokes.

Fantastic- a credit to your endeavour Sir!

Excellent. They just need their first battle honour now.

Well done Stokes.
My own prefered cavalry regiment organisation is as you have presented here, with the extra squadron officer, and the regimental standard not acting as a squadron officer. Makes much more sense at 30 figures, all ranks.
Wishing you and the family a prosperous 2010.

A fine body of men, and excellent painting too! I hope they will serve well and help reverse the fortunes of Stollen arms.

Very impressive work - I really like the details on the painting steps you've provided in earlier posts. Those tips really help newcomers like me.

Have a happy new year

They should be very helpful in defending Stollen against those vile Zwickenaurers.

Terriffic work mate. Inspirational. Remarkably, the uniform is very similar to the Direktorats Gunning Grenadiere zu Pferde regiment. (On the table as metal-in-the-raw!).

OIIIIIIIO

'The Nap at the Palace' by Jose Triado Mayol N ot much in the way of hobby-related activity happening here in the Grand Duchy lately.  Sigh.  And no surprise there really since there are only so many hours in the day, only so much mental and physical energy to spare, and you sometimes simply just have to give in and know when to say, um, "When!"  A glass of wine and/or evening yoga by the hearth with the Grand Duchess (who has practiced for over 20 years), and then off into la-la land.  Zzzzzzzzz.   More immediately, I'm recovering, mentally speaking, from a grueling Friday in which I was involved with three (online) conference sessions, one right after the other, followed by a 90-minute meeting at the end of the day. Also virtual. My brain has been mush ever since, so an easy, completely unproductive Saturday watching intermittent snow fall outside (no accumulation however) and drinking coffee while the visiting handymen completed some repair work down her

Taking Stock Part II: The (As Yet) Unpainted but Planned OOB. . .

  Two companies of Reichsarmee grenadiers painted back in 2017 or 2018.  Minden Austrians of course. A lovely early autumn day here in the grand duchy.  Bright sunshine and a light breeze with cool temperatures will make for some very pleasant late afternoon lawn mowing in a little while.  But first a bit more discussion of painting plans for the future. Last time, I looked back at the various and sundry units, support troops, and civilians that I've managed to paint in the last 17 years as the Grand Duchy of Stollen project has developed.  So today, let's look into the seemingly bottomless Drawer 'o' Lead to my left for a clue to the new direction.  Be forewarned, it's not going to be a quick job getting everything painted and based, but there we are. The following plans are based on the pile of unpainted figures already here.  Any future purchases will be limited to small things that might be needed to fill out the envisioned units (the odd few officers mounted o
