Heavy Cavalry and Others

Introducing the Cuirassiers Royale of the Batrachian Army. This unit is sponsored by the king's devoted and wise uncle, Jean-Louis, but lead by a younger more active colonel. Coats are red, turnbacks, trousers, etc. are buff. The bugler's coat is buff with red turnbacks. The cuirasses are bronzed.
A rear view of the bugler, to give you a better idea of the coloring.
General von und zum Beispiel of Hesse-Pfeffernusse, Quartermaster General for the Soweiter forces.
A pack camel I've had for years and finally painted. (possible desert adventures in The League's future?)
Soweiter League militia command, for the militia figures previously shown. The guy on the far right is a flag-bearer. I gave him a shortened flagpole made of brass tubing. This way I can slip in various flags if I want.

I envy the patience and skill required.
These Cuirassiers are the pride of their inhaber - even any 'honorary' one!

Excellent looking troops . . . and I really like the flagbearer idea.

I really like your buff painting, looks very nice, could you let us know what colors you used as I am getting ready to paint a bunch of french belting?

Thanks, guys!

For the buff I used Foundry's "buff leather" color. For those not familiar with their paints, the paints come in 3 shades for any given color, a dark, medium and light.

Those cuirassiers are a wonder to behold! With their bronze cuirasses they evoke something of the Ancient world.
