And I finally have something worthwhile to post!!! I finally was able to pick up my order from Victoria Mini's. It's been at the local "zollamt" or customs office for the last couple of days and as I had the day off I swung by to pick it up.
Here's all the parts:
and here is the cavalry detachment from the "16th Mynvody Lancers"
I'll have to do a little GS work on the horse and the arms but all in all it's pretty good match. I've heard such wonderful things about GW Liquid GS over the last few months I guess I have a reason to try it out now.

Overall, for the first try I don't think it turned out that bad. I learned a bit in the process and will need to remember to not use so much Hairspray next time, as well as spraying a lighter coat of brown. In the picture above the line from where the tape was is quite visible. :)
More to follow... as time allows...
