What could say 'Christmas' more than a battalion of Hessians...?
The von Ditfurth fusilier regiment c. 1776 - standard Hinchliffe castings, originally raised by John Ray back in the early 1980s and repaired, re-flagged and re-based by me earlier this year.

Armand Louis de Gontaut, Duc de Lauzun by the outrageously talented Doug Mason. Lauzun and his trumpeter are radical conversions (the original figure is cut down to a bare torso, and the uniform and details built back up from wire and soldier) of Gilder figures.
I recommend clicking on the photos to really appreciate the level of detail - the flowing pelisse, flapping sabertache, etc. create a real sense of movement and animation. The painting is pretty sharp too - no one does 'bling' better than DM.
Now all i need to do is create the Legion hussars - don't hold your breath....
