From PaulP: 15mm AB Prussian Cuirassier Regiment


Paul sends us a few photos of a beautiful new addition to his 1813 Prussian force: a regiment of cuirassiers mustered out of East Prussia. 

I think the reason that these guys were such hard nuts was because they were always angry for being cheated out of getting a proper cuirass. Yep, a classic case of cuirass envy. Really, can you blame them? C'mon, talk about using the old bait-and-switch trick. 'Hey lads, come join the Cuirassiers! They are the elite of the Fatherland's cavalry. We'll make sure your custom embossed breastplate is delivered to your address at the front. No, really.'


These AB castings are just amazing - its difficult not to think of them as being 28mm.

'Quit your whining, Dieter! Cuirasses are for sissies...'
The flag, and a nice one it is, was sourced from Signifer


So, Paul adds another 24 points to his total. Nicely done! I wonder what can we expect from him as we go into the last few weeks of the Challenge?
