    Hi Roger
    Well done! you have made an excellent job of this figure
    I like the dog touch, gives it a humerous story
    I'll bet you cant wait to paint another mounted figure and there is a lot out there!
    The colours are excellent particulary the blue uniform all in all a very good result
    What next?
    Cheers

    As for mounted figures I have a feeling Santa might be bringing me another Hecker & Goros German Empire figure.

    Thanks John. Because the figure is looking down from the saddle I needed to find a focus for his attention. At first I thought another figure but after a look through the spares box I found a plastic Historex dog that had an uncanny resemblence to our own pet so in she went.

    Thanks Dan. I really enjoyed this little figure. The prints in The Kaisers Army in Colour are a real inspiration. Tony Schnurr of the Kaiser's Bunker was also very kind and sent me a uniform plate of this regiment.

    Roger.
