1st cuirassier, 1815, part two

the regiment is now fully painted and varnished. I left the bases for a later date (this way I'll make sure all bases in the division have a similar style). They took more than 4 months to complete! The division will never be completed on time for the 200th anniversary of Waterloo...

But it's all relative: painting these was 3 times faster than my earlier hussars: I paid a bit less attention to details. And I stopped painting eyes X__x

I made the regiment 24 strong - at 1:20 this represents exactly their strength at Waterloo.

The flag is to be added.
See a few close ups. Note that I used washes on faces and trousers.
