The Grolsteiner's Finest
The Duchess today was notified that her long promised Regiment of Cuirassiers has completed their training and are ready for battle! The unit is 2 squadrons strong, display coat facings in the Duchess Maria Marlene der Grolstein's favorite color of carmine red. Commanded by Colonel Hans Grothaus, Kurassier Regiment 1 is the premier unit of the Grolsteiner army. KR1 also proudly carry the new cavalry guidons of Grolstein. Court rumors have strongly suggested that Colonel Grothaus is romantically entangled with the Duchess, but so far, being a very taciturn bookish man, he has remained silent on the matter...
Painting comment: I'm going with a heavy gloss coat (Krylon Triple Thick Gloss) on the RSMs. It seems to give the figures a real depth and "fine toy soldier" look that I'm going for with my ImagiNations.
A map of the states is soon forthcoming as military engineers on both sides of the disputed territory strive to produce the necessary information that will create a decisive advantage.
