"Last"? What does this mean in a wargaming context? Is there ever really a "last"?

Beautifully done! Are these for Shako II?

Idontbelieveit I've been painting Calpe Prussians for over 3 years, with inturruptions. This is the last unit to be painted of just under 1000 figures. So last of the Prussians, yes. Last of painting heck no!

Thanks BigRed, yes for Shako 2.

Same thought crossed my mind. I swore, I vowed… more Saxon Gardes du Corps, I cannot excuse any more mamelukes, there were only so many Gendarmes d'Elite, how many 95th rifles does anyone need?

and then someone releases a new series of them

deadhead I hear you. I have 2 Regiments of Foundry Prussian Cuirassiers, I was waiting for Peter at Calpe to sculpt some. To no avail. Now I get an e-mail from Front Rank with their new Cuirassiers…..Groan! I love Front Rank and they would be a better fit for Calpe as the Foundry, Perry sculpts are small.

Lovely work, I need to paint some Prussians its been awhile, but the Saxon Gardes du Corps is tempting me too..the paradox!
