1st Hussars Completed

I have finally finished the 1st Hussars. It has taken me a bit longer than planned but I now have my elite Hussar regiment finished.

The 1st Hussars are made up of 4 recast figures and 2 originals. Now they are painted its hard to tell them a part.


I found the braid on the front of the coat a bit tricky to do and overall Hussars do have a lot of fiddly bits on them. As per usual they are finished with 2 coats of gloss.



And here is the combined 1st/8th Hussars. The 8th Hussars were one of the first units classic Napoleonic units I painted over 18 months ago.  Perhaps I need to paint up a spare Hussar figure I have as Brigadier Etienne Gerard.

Fantastic pair of units.

Do they serve together or deploy separately?

Lovely Mark, well done.

Gorgeous - they look just right for plodding along behind a Marshal who wants to look impressive, or at the very least Elite.

I am using Peter Youngs Charge rules. Each Cavalry unit consists of 12 figures but can operate as 2 independent 6 figure squadrons.

Thank you all for the kind comments. Whilst these have been slow to paint the end result is quiet pleasing.
