    Hello All,

    Darko Prenosil (aka Pokrad) sculpted this unique bust by Zbrush at the spring and after producing and processing I painted it in the last weeks.
    This is a modern uhlan (the last soldiers in the classical headgear) from the 1st Uhlan Regiment of Polish Legions in the Austro-Hungarian Army 1914-18. About historical background I recommend two lexicon links:
    https://encyclopedia.1914-1918-online.net/article/polish_legions
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_Legions_in_World_War_I
    In spite of we can find several pictures about the first brigade, did not remain enough original uniform items to know the exact colours. In Vienna (HGM – Austrian Military Museum) we can find an original Chapka (the headgear) and next to this we can find a totally different uniform of the 2nd brigade. So, only the Czapka helps by the colours. We know many colorized photos, but these are not originals.
    By the greys I used a mix of Luwtwaffe uniform, Russian Tank crew (from Panzer Aces), some blue, white and black. By reds I used Carmine and Rosa, all from Vallejo.
