    Your methods on the sword turned out great Martin (y)!

    If I said it once I'll say it again, these dudes sure had ornate and lovely looking accoutrements :)!

    And now, after 74 days of happy modelling and painting, I'm ready!

    I think, this is Markus' best figure ever and I am glad, I had the chance to paint it!

    Cheers to you all!

    Cheers to you more like!

    Love the overall look , great blacks and weapons .

    The epaulettes were they as proud/high from the shoulders ?

    A very skilled piece of work from references to the SBS itself and the completed piece colours

    Any plans for anything on the base ?

    They became an bit smaller (and softer) just during the war, because it was more practical...:

    Nap,

    the bust you have by "Parade Models" shows the Don-Cossack Kusma Krjutschkow, the first russian soldier who was awarded with the Saint George Cross (number 5501) in WW1 for killing eleven German Uhlans (and wounding a 12 one!) on August 3, 1914 near the village Kalwaria Aleksandrow (Poland). Krjutschkow himself received 16 wounds during this fight, his horse "Moya" eleven ones!

    Kusma Krjutschkow died as an Essaul (Lieutenant) of the "white" Cossacks in the Russian Civil War in Summer 1919 at the Don-Region, only 29 years old...

    Cheers
