I thought that I would get my Regimental Commander out of the way as this would provide a pretext for me painting a lot more cavalry... and thus providing a get out of jail free card with 'she who must be obeyed' :D

The painting was pretty simple and other than the horse furniture was almost identical to my Polish infantry, except that all of their equipment straps were leather.
The flag took a little while to paint BUT paint it I did.. and all on a flag that measures no more than 15mm x 15mm and was made of a tin foil (?) butter lid. The Eagle that you can see on top of the banner pole was taken from an AB Miniatures 15mm French banner bearer from 1809. Theres no crown.. but then how many people would notice right?
