54mm Polish Winged Hussar - WIP

Here's another old 54mm figure I decided to re-paint. Not sure of the maker, but I've had him for over 35 years or so.
Part of the reason I decided to re-paint him was due the two wings being broken apart. They were fixed with some pinning and Green Stuff. The metal turned black after soaking in Simple Green to remove the old enamel and oil-bassed paint.
After I finish this guy, and possibly a couple more old 54mm models in various stages of disrepair, I will get back to 28mm figures. I just don't want these guys sitting around collecting dust - or worse, thrown out in momentary lapse of judgement.



  1. Ah, one of my favorite military units. Looking forward to seeing this guy! The pelt is already looking sharp.

    Maranatha indeed!

  2. Great work. Blush on the cheeks! Great! Hussars were romantic, with a big heart and a steel will. For 125 years has not lost a battle.


  3. A very cool figure to paint Dean. Enjoy.

  4. Thanks a lot for the kind words, Gentlemen.

    Yes, I have say they combined an awesome appearance and with an equally awesome battlefield reputation.

    Best to all, Dean
