Carrying on with my late Prussian army and the Katzbach order of battle I have painted up a Silesian landwehr cavalry regiment. I can't recall the number at the moment but will add it in later. This is my 7th Prussian cavalry regiment, not a huge amount by a lot of peoples standards however I'm chuffed to see them finished!
The pics are a bit iffy colour wise but you get the overall effect.
As usual the shading hasn't shown up well on the horses and also as usual at the very last moment I bumped a bloody lance and paint came off. These lance holding troops are going to be a nightmare!!!
Although dark the blues come out well with a coat of varnish on them.
Maybe a bit to close on a 15mm figure but for once you can actually see the shading on my blues, flesh and grey.
I did the yellow with a GW foundation paint as a base and then highlighted with an old humbrol acrylic signal yellow with a wee bit of white mixed in.
I missed a trick on the officers saddle cover giving them just regular black sheepskins instead of white but no matter.
So that's them, more cannon fodder for my Prussian army. In my sights now should be a special Prussian cavalry regiment I have sitting around waiting for an undercoat but I'm hoping Craig gets his finished 1st to show it off as I need a change from cavalry. I have a lot of other troop types on the go that I can choose from so I'll have a rummage!
What will I do next? Hmm I'll have a long think about it . . .
