Hi

i am just painting the final figures of my WW2 Polish army. 

I have something i cannot work out what it is on the Polish Cavalry Charging figure _ POL 14. Even using optivisor

On the lsft side of the figure to the rear of the saddle is the mans Czapka hat.. nest to this is a triangular shape with a couple of creases pointing upwards.

is this the tail of his greatcoat? If not what is it?

Cheers

Hi I'm awaiting my own delivery of Polish WW2 goodies myself, hopefully in a day or two, so I don't have the fig to hand, will have a peak when they arrive. To start off though, here's the best illustrated image of Polish Cavalry kit I can find, however it's personal items and not horse furniture. Scroll down the link and it should come up.

Sorry Orcs, I thought I'd replied to this!  I checked the painted figure from the website and it's just a section of his greatcoat, flying in the air dynamically!

Thanks Leon, I thought that might be the case. and fortunately that was what I had painted it as.

The correct answer to the Polish cavalry man question comes from May West:

"Lieutenant, is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

Yes, he is. Just not in the way he intends.
I have not the pleasure of understanding you. Of what are you talking?

Technically - in terms of repeating the post, I was obliged to use the "quote" device.  Grammatically, however I was not quoting myself, but repeating the quote of May West. 

The "pedantic" amongst us will get that I am sure.  Not that anyone on the Forum is in any way pedantic.

Heaven forfend that one should risk the contumely concomitant upon being considered pedantic, but wasn't it MaE West?
