Well I'm glad to say all the Russian Guard Cossacks are now painted as well as 3 casualty figures that will be keeping them company! I've made a wee video for the YouTube painting Challenge:
as well as a few pictures below:
The yellow comes out a wee bit strong in the pictures and the shading are kinda burnt out however you should be able to get an idea of the finished regiment.
I enjoyed painting the trumpeters, I added a thin piece of cord made from green stuff around the body to finish them off. I made the mistake of giving them silver trumpets before I found out that they were awarded after Leipzig, Doh!
Also the casualties were fun to do and I feel they add a little to the finished regiment.
Poor we French men must have been caught out in the open before they had the chance to form square?
I've thoroughly enjoyed painting up Sho's Leib Garde Cossacks and they are definitely nice enough figures when painted to sit alongside my OG and AB Russians.
I have already added the sand and sealed it with PVA so the next time you will see these little chaps I'll have the bases all finished. Thanks for taking the time to check out my progress and I hope you have enjoyed my little adventure with Sho Boki's Russian LG Cossacks!
