In the background of my hobby life I've been quietly cleaning up my pretty large unpainted figure mountain. Every odd half hour I've picked up scalpel and files and progress has been good.
So far I've managed to clean up and glue 2 regiments of Prussian hussars. A mix of figures purchased from a friend undercoated and from Fighting 15s.
These will be Silesian in brown with yellow braid and green with yellow braid as I already have the Leib hussars plus brandenburg hussars painted up.
I have always loved these charging hussars as they remind me of the many illustrations of the 1813 period hussars (as well as the Elite 28mm hussar I once owned). The figures took a bit of time to clean up especially the horses that had a number of lumps between the rear legs.
I'll not jump straight onto them after the artillery as I have some panzers id like to put to bed but I'm looking forward to doing them as I've not painted horses in a while.
Happy modelling and wargaming!
Lovely to have you back in the Land of Blog!
Thanks Matt, hopefully I can continue to update it.
Nice looking models - do you paint your figures already mounted on the bases?
That'll be ace once they're done up!
Awesome, glad to see you back at it!
A perfect choice! I have always thought the particular hussar unit you plan to paint was very attractive. Lovely looking figures too, even in the bare metal.
Thanks Stokes, the Prussian hussars from AB are definitely very nice figures, I hope I can still paint all the braid.
Thank you very much Ben!
Hopefully FMB, thanks!
They are Stryker, no I only used the bases to show how they will be once painted. I base them on cardboard in each pose for painting.
Me as well Phil
That should give you a very nice mix of Prussian Hussars - one each in black, dark blue, brown and green!
Nice. Love the brown and yellow Silesian Hussar uniform
