Russian General with entourage
























The summer break after the annual battle with Anselm was beneficial, but not dormant. Russia got one of the fabulous Frontrank Officers on horse, who I modified into a General. He is accompanied by his own standard bearer (Trident) and footman (Irregular Miniatures). I changed the color of lapels and saddlebag into a light reseda, which is pure fiction, but gives them a particular recognition and matches well with the flag. That´s all.

  4. Beautiful work. I like the change of shade of green too - green is a tricky colour to work with on miniatures.

    1. Thank you, Allan!! The footman is one of my favorite pieces of the Irregulars, because his arms are quite flexible - I can always change it.

  6. A little fiction is good.

    What I don't understand is how I missed the last battle until today! Each game I see the pictures and think "this is as good as it gets" and then, always, the next one is even better! Fantastic pictures!
