Perry French Hussars - WIP + 3
The unit of 9th Hussars are now about 75% complete. The main troopers, including a unit of elites are painted. Well, actually their carbines, sabretaches and scabbards still need to be added; as well as flocking. The officer and musician are almost done, but since they both have individual "flair" they'll be worked on separately from the troopers.
Front shots of the elites and the center guys:
I don't want to say these were speed-painted, because there was quite a bit of small details, but I can say they were painted in a production-line sort of way. They need to be ready for a playtest game next Saturday, so I kind of rushed the paint job. I didn't bother to paint the Hungarian knots on the elite's breeches - maybe I'll add them later - but that detail would be very time-consuming. Luckily, I have those sabretache "decals" - I'd never be able to paint those by hand - maybe one, but not 14 of them.
