AB figures – very well painted

Very striking, the painting style reminds me of that used on the best flat figures.

indeed very artistically painting, still no grey horses for trumpeters in this regiment.

When they started out the rule was black horses for all, except for the officers who favoured light coloured bays, I think I recall. Silver trumpets and the trumpeters indeed rode blacks. Mind you, they look wonderful on greys painted to this standard….and by the time they got to Borodino I think any horse would do!

Love these AB figures and will not again comment on the rolled cloak. Much debate here and one of them has it over his right shoulder anyway.

How about the monogram? Eureka help you in 28mm with an exquisite moulding, but I struggled with both them and Black Hussar's. How about in 15/18mm? Wonderful work

Please do show your end result too. They do not have to be of this standard and any level of photography is welcome. This forum needs more feedback and I suspect Alexkalinin would be delighted to see his work inspired others.
