    Nicely painted but that right arm makes this bust look very odd

    Nope it's a Russian lancer. I agree the one and a half arms look odd, almost a work in progress waiting for the left arm.

    Looking good Ben.
    I should go for more shading. The face looks allover the same color.

    It's definitively a russian Uhlan/Lancer. They looked very similar to their enemies, the polish Uhlans fighting for Napoleon.

    For Instance:

    The author wrote correctly.
    Everything correctly is the uhlan. The regiment was called "Polish" In Russian army there were many regiments which were called on a nationality: "Polish, Tatar, Kalmyk, Lithuanian, Ingermandlansky" and so on, but it didn't mean that Poles or who that another, there was many nationalities there served.

    The artist very well painted a figure.

    *******************************
    P.S. The sculptor once again made many mistakes in a uniform. As well as in a bust of the Russian grenadier. If the uniform not exact, a bust loses the value as a military and historical miniature.
    At a molding of a military and historical miniature personal imaginations and conjectures are inadmissible, it is necessary to be guided by only historical documents, museum pieces and other serious documents.

    Ok. My mistake then. I was a bit sugested by the photo attached in the first post, there is a subtitle "Polonishe Ulan Regiment" .

    Arms do look weird I must say, right arm is strange and left creates impression of amputation.. All last 3 Richard's works seem to have this problem - not the best solution artistically. If sculptor decided to do one arm, its best to do the other IMHO
    Paintwork looks good so far, there is a feel that it needs a little more to finish
