Saxon Hussars

This year has been pretty slow on the painting front.  What limited time I have seems to be spent on re basing.  

This morning I decided to re start painting my Saxon RSM Hussars. I have 12 of them that I started at least 18 months ago but I am finding really hard to motivate myself to complete.  So I got 6 of them out of their box and got the paints out.

These pictures show how far I got with them.

Let's see if I can get them finished by end of next weekend.

Yes indeed! They look good thus far. I've got 28 or 30 of the same figure(s), but I too am having a hard time motivating myself to paint hussars again after the last batch of 30 in 2010-2011.

Best Regards,

I understand you well with the feeling of being slow in painting process - same to me some times, especially when professional life is taking all energies...
They come out great, already!

Saxon hussars? Didn't even know the Saxons had hussars in the SYW. I thought the only light cavalry were the chevauxlegers. You learn something new every day - any more info greatly appreciated.

Despite my enthusiasm for the RSM range, I think it has to be said that the poses for their cavalry are a bit bland and unimaginative, something that is particularly evident in the various hussar designs. But great work on the painting.

Best wishes, Keith.
