February Painting - With Pictures

Finally I was able to take some pictures. Here we have the Margrave of Carpania's Baron Trask of Eisenmuhlen (left) and an aide de camp to Generalleutnant Baron von Stuppe (right). Both are RSM figures. Baron Trask is the Margraviate's armaments expert and a master gunner in his own right. Because he is related by marriage to the Britannian royal family, he is also a Major General in that army and wears the Britannian uniform most of the time.

Carpania also added the Teutonica Musketeer Regiment to their army in February. These are Sash and Saber castings. I was short officer castings so they will have to be painted and mounted later.

Meanwhile, the Duchy of Courland has been recruiting as well, adding the Severinski Grenadier Battalion. The figures are Foundry and the battalion was purchased from Mark "Extra Crispy" Severin, hence its name.

Courland was also busy with its artillery arm. Here is a 12-lb field gun (MiniFig) with its gun crew of Front Rank gunners and artillery fusiliers.

And here is a licorne howitzer (Newline) with its crew of bombardiers and artillery fusiliers from Front Rank.

And for March, I'll be finishing the Courland 12-lbr (still have to put the matte glaze on it) and two mounted officers (the Duke himself and his son, who will command all the grenadiers) as well as some Courland cavalry.

Which RSM figures are the two at the top of the page? Are they the English mounted officer and English ADC?

Which Sash & Saber figures went into making that regiment?

I believe that the RSMs are as you state. Baron Trask's uniform is very similar to some MiniFigs AMR British mounted officer uniforms that I have. I got them as part of a larger lot of mixed AMR figures.

The S&S musketeers were also part of a larger lot of SYW Prussians, so I don't know exactly which #s they are. They have fully rounded cuffs and lapels so I'm presuming they are the standard S&S Prussian musketeer command and infantry figures.
