To my extreme delight I discovered that AB sculpted a much neglected topic, French heavy cavalry – those were later converted into cuirassiers under Bonaparte / Napoléon. Only one regiment had a cuirass in the French revolution, the ci devant cuirassiers du roi, or 8e Cavalerie. The standard was created thankfully by notbyappointment – here for a change the 2nd squadron as well, and therefore also the pole was painted in red.

Notice the blue and gold lettering on the officer's sword blade or the trumpet cords…and this is 18mm scale.

Absolutely beautiful. I copied them into PAINT and Zoomed in and they don't lose a thing, the painting is still amazing.

I've never been able to master the "Damascened blade" look realistically, but it looks spot-on here.

The things you learn here. I know about a Damascene conversion, but never heard that term applied to a sword. Google soon taught me.

Bluing I have tried on 28mm occifers' swords, even with a bit of gold "engraving", but I am much the wiser now.

Thanks d'Hautpol

thanks for those nice feed backs, the blueing is easy, you can use a blue ink, or dark blue ink, for the gold, some dots.
