I would like to say I had fun painting the edging around the shabraques, thirty white triangles followed by thirty coloured triangles for each figure, but I can't.
It wasn't fun.
Where are the painting nanobots I dream of?

Somehow this shot has highlighted the difference in size, they don't look that bad - honest :)

I chose the 1st and 2nd Leib regiments because they're black, mostly, and arguably 'elite'. Same goes for the next regiment - the 3rd (Brandenburg) regiment which performed well in combat and adds a bit of colour to the sea of dark blue uniforms.

Last but not least are the hussars of the 5th Regiment (Pomeranian). These are dressed in madder dolmans; I checked out several shades of madder and couldn't really decide which shade to go for. If you think its a way off, you can let me know.

So there we go, twenty four figures with sixty triangles a piece.... I make that.....
... a lot of triangles.
