Glenn is fielding three units of hussars in his Russian army. I chose units that would give him as wide a variety of colors as possible.
All figures are from Foundry.
Now I just have the mounted Jager left, and I will be done with the cavalry!
Beautifully done; not surprisingly the Soum and Aktyrsk regiments were the first two that I did for my own Russian army, the grey/red and yellow/brown combnations both being striking and really standing out from the "Green Horde" of the reast of the Russian army.ReplyDelete
Exactly why I chose them! Great minds think alike.ReplyDelete
Love, love, love the detail and the colors.ReplyDelete
These are some beautiful units.
I first started collecting Wargames Foundry figures in 1998 or so, and I think only Perry are better.
It's a shame that Foundry did these guys wearing their cover-alls. The grey pants eliminate some of the extra color 'pop' achieved in the dress uniform pants/ boots of these Hussars.ReplyDelete
Still, they look very ready for battle and authentic.
Impressive painting as always, Scott. Love the details on the trumpeter. Best, DeanReplyDelete
Yes, hussars look best in full dress. But doesn't everyone?ReplyDelete
I have just been looking over the fantastic Russian Army you have painted and they a inspirational.
Thanks, all. Still a long way to go!ReplyDelete
beautiful, just beautiful.ReplyDelete
Very nice! I used to live in the Region of Ukraine near Sumy and Akhtyrka. It's very beautiful. Sumy, in particular, is very proud of their Hussar heritage and they have a new memorial in town.ReplyDelete
