    Jason, thanks for giving me another excuse to use this wonderful smilie


    -------------> <---------------------


    I can only repeat: I just LOVE this! You're a very good sculptor and painter, and I love seeing Prussians in miniature - I just like the"Advance, and do or die!" attitude of the 19th century Prussian soldier!


    Again :

    Sorry if the pix are fuzzy, the highlights on the faces are not that stark. It's a never ending battle w/ the camera and the setup.

    Looks great Jason. I look forward to seeing it in 3d. I really like the composition and sense of motion.

    Jason, Fantastic work my friend, Only five weeks huh? At the rate I work I'd still be mixing up the putty. You have developed quite a system for yourself that work well to say the least.~Gary (y) (y) (y) (y) (y)

    Johan,

    It's depicting the Prussian 4th Guard Grenadier Regiment (Queen Augusta's) of the 4th Guards Brigade of the 2nd Guards Division. They were part of the first wave of attacks on St. Privat.
    According to Osprey's book on the campaign, their objective this day was the farm of Jerusalem just south of St. Privat. Within a matter of minutes the French delivered murderously accurate Chassepot rifle fire and both regiments (2nd and 4th) of the brigade suffered severe casualties, the 4th Reg't losing ALL it's officers.

    A note on the uniform. I used Outpost Wargame Service: Franco-Prussian War painting guide Volume two. At first I was reluctant to use a wargame painting guide, aside from it's lack of eye pleasing illustrations it's very well documented and I was sold when reading their bibliography section and it looked credible to me(sometimes I just like to know where people get their sources ;) Anyway, the uniform of the 4th Guard Grenadiers differed from the ones of the Foot Guards and was devoid of the "Litzun" on cuffs and collar.

    Hope that didn't bore ya

    I really think you have all the abilities to turn out a magnificent Fr-Pr war diorama some day ... have you looked at the range of Verlinden buildings/ruined houses etc. ? Some of that stuff would look good as 19th century French buildings.
