Prussian Hussars

I showed a seek preview of these in progress a few weeks ago and completed them shortly afterward, having thoroughly enjoyed painted them much to my own surprise.

These can be used to represent a number of Prussian Hussar regiments, several wore the dark Prussian blue and had red facings. I’ve used the illustrations in Osprey Publishings Prussian Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars (2) as a guide and imagine these being played mostly as one of the Brandenburg Hussar Regiments.

My love/hate relationship with Warlord “resin” continues, thankfully I picked this set up (and another) off eBay for about £15 each, which makes it much more palatable. At £27 RRP, these are getting too close to the price of metals for what I class as an inferior material.

Sculpting wise these are actually rather good once completed, the detail is quite defined, and although the riders are all single piece as a unit there’s enough variety to make it interesting.

The horses are still on the skinny side compared to the likes of the Perry’s but they don’t stand out too much and I’ll mainly be using this with other Warlord Prussian Cavalry until the Perry’s release the Plastic Dragoon kit!

I continued with my contrast method when painting the horses but changed over the paint triad system for the riders and I think it really shows.

Overall I think these are by far the best-painted miniatures I’ve done to date and it’s nice to look back and see the progress.
