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 one of the troopers from the left side.


And here he is from the right side.


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.


And finally, here is our dashing colonel from the other side. Of all the figures in the Revell SYW hussar set, I like this figure the best.

Stokes,

They are coming along quite nicely. . . . you'll be finished soon I think.

Stokes - excellent painting, amazing how much plastics have come on since the old Airfix days. Do you find that they blend in well enough with your metal figures?

Looking good! This'll be a very dashing unit, methinks.

Very nice work, Stokes. They're coming alive before our eyes!

These really are v fine figures and I kick myself repeatedly for not buying the boxes I saw in the local model shop 5 odd years ago. The write up on the plastic soldier web site says that in their opinion it was one of the best sets ever produced. It does help of course that your painting does them full justice.

I have nearly finished my latest 2 regiments which are Brunswick units. This is a blatent copy after seeing the units on Der Alte Fritz's web-site. However September was extremely busy both at work and home so progress is relatively slow.
