    Every now and again I have a foray into the world of round figures and this one from Ulrich was a must have as soon as he told me about it.
    My version has had a slight modification to include piping on the rear of the uhlanka skirt to allow me to paint it in the pre feldgrau colourful blue uniform. Regiment No 16 having light blue facings and white piping.
    Given the pose and the tschapka cover my figure will be depicted on manoeuvres preparing for war that was to prove to be a short time away.

    The horse is painted with a basecoat of acrylics and the oiling process has just begun.

    The figure's face has been painted in oils and still requires some work the rest is base coated with acrylics and will be over painted with oils.

    Nice project and a great start, Roger!

    This is a great figure, too, very animated. I like your choice to finish him in his pre-1910 uniform. One of the things that makes collecting the Kaiser's army so much fun is the color and the traditional details of the pre-field-gray uniforms.

    Prost!

    Welcome back to the Round Side. Horse looks really good so far. The blue uniform will look awesome... nicer than the feldgrau. Curiosity, what is the scale of this guy? I'm putting in my guess at 75mm.

    I'll be following this one closely

    Cheers Brad. I haven't found any photographic evidence of uhlans with the ammo pouches c.1900 yet so keeping my fingers crossed.

    A beautiful piece Roger.
    That nag is a bit special. I really like the pose and will be interested to see how the jockey seats on to the saddle.
    Good to see you back in 3D mode

    Roger, are you suggesting there's a connection between the failing peepers and past consumption of vast amounts of hard spirits?

    Humbug!!!!!
