Minden Hussar Update. . .

Photos to follow, but yours truly is very exited to report that the final nine Minden hussars are just about finished.  Yes, almost!  

Very early yesterday morning, I applied metallics to things like stirrups, carbine barrels/firelocks, and sabre hilts.  I also applied two coats of green to the base of each figure yesterday evening following supper and Young Master Paul's bedtime.  Only yellow vandyking and back horse furniture left to do, plus a few inevitable touch-ups, and then all that's left to do is apply two coats of Future/Klear acrylic flow finish to protect and impart that all-important glossy finish.  

Then, it's time to get onto thos 60 RSM Prussian musketeers, to be painted up as Hanseatic (Luebeck) infantry.  I'm really looking forward to that because it seems so easy in comparison to the hussars!  I'll eventually tackle another regiment of 25/30mm hussars -- maybe in two-three years -- but for now, it's back to simpler uniforms and painting schemes. . .  Hallelujah!

Progress is being made, and I'm looking forward to seeing the photos. I agree, it's so much easier painting infantry after cavarly.

Finishing is something to fear and cherish. Cherish because we can be proud of the accomplishment. Fear since this means that we now need to start something new.
