7 Horsemen - WIP - Hussars Completed

Well, the riders anyway - still need to do the horses. But, nevertheless, here are the command figures for a unit each of French 9th Hussars and 1st KGL Hussars.
With these additional command figures, there will be two units each of these regiments - all with 8 figures.
I was glad to find that I had kept the pre-printed sabretaches which I used for the original box of French Hussars.
The sabretache images for all French regiments were kindly posted on a now dead link by TMP Aldo - this was back in 2010, so no idea if these exists in cyberspace anymore.
Thankfully, the British, including the KGL, used plain black leather sabretaches for the field. Next up will be one each: carabinier, cuirassier and dragoon.

Errata: I now see I forgot to paint the 9th Hussar officer's collar, and the dolman braiding on the KGL trumpeter.

  1. Great painting, Dean.

    The 9th Hussars had one of the most striking uniforms in the French army.
