The big idea is that I now have some German Confederation/Prussian grenadiers with distinctive headgear to put on the table. I must say, it is a very interesting look, almost bearskin-like from some angles, and I'm happy with how these came out. The major challenge was to keep the head from looking like a big, black lump. I wound up drybrushing the horsehair with dark grey and a touch of light gray to give a bit of texture and variation while still looking the part. I wonder if the Saxons actually went into combat wearing their plumes?
