Very nice!

There is a certain humour in the bugler blowing hard into the ears of a trooper, who is going to do the old slice and dice if the bugler doesn't stop…

But very nice work.

Narratio, I just noticed that, indeed the scene is funny! xD

It's just a matter of rearranging the position of the bases, though. I should probably do that, so that the trooper doesn't look like he's about to murder his loud comrade!

Those are so nice, Mateus. Beautifilly done, as always. The gold stands out so well on the field of white, grey and black.

The bugler is warning him to never sound retreat! At least the pistol guy isn't threatening to shoot anybody in the head!

Seriously, you must have every set Zvezda ever made! The best ever made and your painting makes them even better! Please stay with Napoleonics for just a little while longer.

Very humorous, but awesome work!

@Davbenbak, I have multiple kits of every type of infantry/ cavalry, so I can paint several distinct regiments.

For instance, I have 3 regiments of russian cuirassiers painted already, and have boxes to paint another 3, so maybe I have a problem… :D

And don't worry, I have stuff planned for napoleonics to keep me busy for at least another 5 years (!)
