28mm: Sculpt - Horse and Dragoon

the last of my initial sculpts for 28mm, a horse and generic dragoon (rider separate)

my horse and rider with a Front Rank SYW figure to give a size comparison - I think I've edged toward 30mm 😊

the rider still sits a little high in the saddle and there are a few fluffs that need fixing which the photos have shown up.

Time to start working out the order in which all the accumulated masters (both 40mm & 28mm) will go into moulds

Troops in motion .....

    The despatches have reached the eyes of General Waldebeck, one tells him of the movement north-west towards the province of Zinzendorf by the Begovian army. A meeting of officers has been called and the General briefs them on the disposition of forces ....
 The Begovian army is on the march towards our borders, we must dispose of the troops available to us to meet this threat.
   The Dragoons, infantry and  artillery will move to Partoki in the centre of the Nastrovian plains.
Halfway between Partoki and the border will be the Rutenian cavalry and Hofler's Pandours at Topdan, with the Uhlans and the Kings Jagers at Barzoli.
    The local land militias will be activated and see to the defence of the border towns and man the watchtowers. Gentlemen return to you commands and get your troops into position as soon as possible...

The next day, General Waldebeck leaves Pulverstadt with a brigade of infantry to march to Partoki...

Troops from Rutenia....

After some careful negotiation (including supplies of arms from Fenwick and a guarantee of support from the Imperium) the Principality of Rutenia has declared itself independent from Begovia and is now an ally of Wittenberg....

A mounted contingent of troops from Rutenia has travelled to the small monastery at Kernow in the north of Wittenberg's Zinzendorf province.  Watched by some locals and General Waldebeck the Rutenian Battle Banner of St George (held in safekeeping in the monastery for 50 years) is handed over ....
 The battle banner of St George is shown to the waiting Rutenian cavalry...
 The Rutenian troops leave with General Waldebeck and his escort....
 they will travel south-west to join the Wittenberg troops stationed at Partoki in the centre of the Nastrovian Plains.
