What next?

I'm part way through some Prussian command figures, part AB part Fantassin. Perhaps these will be next. The kids were supposed to be helping me paint some Prussian infantry.  Sarah managed to paint two sticks of grey trousers before getting bored and Ken junior just couldn't get started. I'm paying them 50p a stick (eight figures on a stick) to do the trousers and blue coats. Slave labour?

!st and 2nd Regiments of Cuirassiers

Just completed these AB figures, I think they look nice. Unlike other brands of figures, these have decent sized swords which makes a world of difference I think. I've put 12 riders in a regiment but these can always be doubled up for Gen de Brigade type rulesets. The only thing I'm not sure about is the cloak mounted on top of the portmanteaux, some people have painted the entire cloak in the regimental facing colour but I did notice a historix cuirassier kit with just a bit in the middle showing the coloured lining - anyway thats the look I eventually went for.
