Here is the rear of the figure, I may make the bow on the que blue. Should the buckles on the pack be brass? I may also go a little lighter with the blue but have not decided yet.
To the left is a picture of a general I started working on last night, being inspired by Ionnis' Minden Colonel picture featured on the Minden Miniatures page and the Alte Fritz Journal. I like the face of this model quite a bit, he looks very determined. I am a fan of the Dapple Grey horse so this fellow may get one. I painted the cuffs and facings black per Bavarian Generals but am not sure how to paint the lace on the cuffs and front of the coat, I will have to look into this. I painted the saddle furniture dark blue with yellow outline.
Here is a staight on shot of the face, once again very serious man. I will complete the face by painting the bottom lip a bit more pink.

Closer view from the right. I received a gift certificate from Lowes for Christmas so I am going to buy another lamp today after looking at these pictures. I like the Crusador miniatures and they are affordable for my 28mm stuff. I look forward to posting pictures of the Battalion as it is painted and I look forward to the BYOB game in March and meeting some of you face to face.
