Zvezda Russian Cuirassiers

Posted by Marvin on 13 Feb 2017, 21:04

Hi folks

Here's the latest in my long list of Napoleonic cavalry. Zvezda's very lovely Russian Cuirassiers painted as the Astrakhan Regiment. After 21 regiments you would probably think I've had enough (you probably have...) but I'm still enjoying it.

More pics and stuff and nonsense on the old blog.

I'd better get on now with my figures for the Bennos Figures Forum Great Miniature Figures Parade 2017! :mrgreen:

Again great work from you.
And I am always inspired by the horses.
And of course from the riders.

Exactly my words. And I always think that painting white uniforms is one of the biggest challenges in this hobby - a challenge that has been successfully mastered here!

I've never particularly had a great desire to paint horses. But now I've been doing it, I can't stop. It's like a sickness! :shock:

I would like to cry. It hurt so much.
Why, oh why these are not my painted figures?
Luckily I did not paint any Napoleonic.

Fantastic!
