I kind of rushed to finish these guys off today for a Naps game at the club.
These are my East Prussian cuirassiers from AB
As I mentioned before I wasn't really that happy with them as I was expecting charging cuirassiers and I'm still not too keen on them but they are finished and they had their 1st outing today. I'll post a battle report soon
Also as I mentioned before please don't use my saddle colour as a guide as I believe they should be red and for some unknown reason (really weird for me) I chose to paint them with the facing colour. The flag is a cracker, I picked up a set of 15mm flags on ebay from a company called signifer (I think?). The infantry flags were too small for AB figures but the cavalry flags are spot on.
I will tidy up the finer details later (around buttons, some of the horses eyes etc) but for now they have a single coat of varnish applied, they are grassed and I am sure they will grow on me.
I should add that the AB Prussian kurassiers didn't come with a standard so I clipped off a sword and drilled out the hand before inserting a straightened paper clip. I then made a new hand and attachment from green stuff to hold the standard. I have since found out that there is a standard bearer available and have 1 in my newest regiment!!! There was definitely none offered at Fighting 15's when I ordered them yet there is now!?
