  1. The 7th Regiment von Kohler.
  2. I recognised Anthony Quayle by his shorts immediately Harry Andrews is a good figure too.
  3. Prussian Dragoons 3rd Regiment von Irwing. Unfortunately the pink tends to bleach out under the lights so please use your imagination to fill in the missing bits in the photos. They have the reputation as the worst set Hat have made so far. In that case I don't think they're doing too bad. They look OK as a group. An aid to the imagination.
  4. You're piling on the need to paint list Jim You already had the 2nd Brigade (Union Bigade) to finish 1st , 2nd and 6th Dragoons, now you've added the 1st Brigade (Household Brigade) of 1st and 2nd Life Guards, the Royal Horse Guards (the Blues), and the 1st (King's) Dragoon Guards. Good luck
  5. Painting a perfect ? freehand isn't that easy Jim
  6. You bcan do a good mix with these and the Brit infantry Jim
  7. Just the Musketeers or Fusiliers and Grenadiers too?
  8. The firing line IR3 Renouard IR41 Lettow The combined firing line
  9. Pointers have been around for a very long time so he's certainly not out of place
  10. I'm with you Vince, that's the best pose in the set
  11. Well said Jim. Paint for yourself, you're the one that looks at the figures most. If others like your efforts it's a bonus. As for painting horses, I just go with what I feel like doing at the time. I have no fixed sequence.
  12. And what about the 1st Royals? You could try some mottling on the greys by spotting with nuln oil Jim. I've tried it on some 1.72 amd it looks ok. You'd just have to practice a bit. I'm planning to revamp and expand on my Greys this year so only a hundred or so horses to play with Oh there will be a few 1st and 6th there too
  13. It's more a sculptor thing. Most 28mm Napoleonics seem to look like the old Strelets. Many like them that way
  14. I forgot to mention that if the article is in a language you are not familiar with, simply use the browser translator before converting to .pdf and you can read the article in your chosen language at your leisure.
