Polish Guard Lancers - in progress

I have had a break from painting classic Napoleonics over the last 3 months.  This week however I have been making progress on a 6 figure squadron of Polish Guard Lancers using FN44 figures. 

They are as per usual taking longer than I expect but his morning I make good progress on them and managed to complete the white on the first figure.  It took over 30 minutes just doing this.


There is still a fair bit of detail to finish him off but I can now see what the finished figure is going to look like.


The 2nd Squadron will be painted as the Red Guard Lancers and will look rather fetching on the wargame table.

Great work Mark! By coincidence I also have a squadron of Red Lancers on my to do list for this year.

He and steed are coming along very well! I like especially your treatment of the horse coat and white plume atop the czapka. Very eager to see the entire squadron when once finished.

Best Regards,

They are going to look lovely when they're all glossed up, Mark.

I'm surprised it only took half an hour what the czapka cords, plume, aiguillettes, epaulettes, Eagles, 'N's, etc. But it will be worth it; they will look great and backed up by some red lancers will dominate the table-top fashion parade. I suspect they'll fight well too!

I echo Rob's comment. An outstanding job and quite the efficient painter at only thirty minutes. My hat is off to you sir!
