So this is a unit I'm really happy to get out the way and the May Painting Challenge has really helped to keep me motivated on pushing to the end with them.
You can check out my video here:
Or below are some pics of the finished regiment
I've been really enjoying painting horses lately as I have colours nailed down that work for me. I'm comfortable with how the horses turned out however I maybe went a little bright on the greys?
I'm also chuffed with the totenkopfs on the shako covers as they are tiny so I guess the guys painted them on themselves?
The braid was surprisingly straight forward. I undercoated in Vallejo 165 and this gave a sound base shade not to dark to give a skeletal look and not to light to be close to the white plus chainmail for the buttons so really pleased with that.
So all in all I'm very happy with them, I mixed Vallejo sky blue with black for the uniform highlight and it gave a nice highlight without looking to grey or to blue.
So that's another Prussian unit ticked off!!! Hussar hurrah!!!!
Sorry for not getting round everyone's blogs more frequently as the MPC has taken up a lot of time.
happy war gaming and painting!
