The Latest Hussar Painting Updates. . .
90 minutes painting this evening!!! Worked on the scabbards, carbine barrels, and carbine stocks. Last night, I focused on the sabretache lace -- yellow for the troopers and gold for the officers. Still a great deal to do along with the inevitable touch-ups, but they are coming along pretty nicely I think.
Here's a slightly blurred shot of the colonel, but you can see the brading on his dolman and pelisse pretty well. I did this with a #1 round that has a good point and not too much gold on the bristles.
