Finished up another unit and mounted officer for my upcoming ImagiNations game at Kublacon game convention this weekend. Definitely wanted to bolster the ranks with some grenadiers.
Behold- Lord Spiffington's Whites. This stalwart and well set up bunch of lads are a favorite of Empress P, who chose the flag colors for them (IE she handed me the paint pots). They are commanded by the dashing Baron Fossmeisterhaus.

I've currently designed 3 variations of mounted officers, but this is the first chance I've had to get one finished. Baron Fossmeisterhaus' uniform colors are based upon a conversation, actually a running dialogue with my daughter, the Empress P. regarding the color pink, and how it is not just a "girls" color.

Cardinal, indeed. Although, sadly, I'm a winter, and rose just makes me look jaundiced.

Lovely figures and painting. The exploding shells are a nice touch too. I might have to borrow that idea.

Old Fritz- Thank you! We'll parlay about the "Boom!" markers.
