SYW - Austrian Army: Hussar of the Regiment Nádasdy - WIP - Part 3

Figures:  Wargames Foundry
Scale:  28mm
Flags:  GMB Design

Today the postman brought the flags from GMB Design I ordered just a few days ago. 
As always - really cool stuff. 
I like the quality and optic of these flags very much.

I just bought some flags for the cavalry regiments I want to paint next and of course the flag for the hussar regiment Nádasdy that unfortunately still isn´t ready yet.

But I couldn´t resist to open the package with the flag needed for this regiment for the "Standartenträger" is ready. :)

This is how the "Standartenträger" and his comrade joining the same base are looking with the great GMB-flag.

Though I haven´t finished the whole regiment I was at least able to get the first half ready.  

Originally I didn´t want to post these figs before having finished the whole regiment. 
But the flags have been too seductive.

The rest of the regiment is still WIP, but it won´t take too long until they will be ready for action. 
There are at least another three horses ready waiting for their riders.

Hamburger Tactica - Professional pictures

Here is a link for photos from the Hamburger Tactica 2012. I´m sure you will agree that this is a great con.
What I liked most is the builded castle from Chicken. He glued about 30.000 self-made parts together to get this great building finished.

I also put the link in my list you can find on the right side of my blog (Spieltrieb-Frankfurt).

SYW - Austrian Army: Hussar of the Regiment Nádasdy - WIP - Part 2

Figure:  Wargames Foundry
Scale:  28mm

Though the rest of the regiment isn't ready for action yet, I would like to show you the first completed figure with the finished pelisse that was missing in my former post.

And I´m very glad that I found another uniform plate showing this regiment. And it shows it right in the way I painted it. I found the plate in a Warrior-book from Osprey. The uniform is the same shown also by Funcken and another source that can be found on internet ( The only question is whether the different sources copied each other ?! But I won´t care about that too much because the combination of colors looks very nice.

And here´s my first finished hussar of that regiment.

The horses are already primed and based with the ground colors. The one in the first row is almost finished.

The other hussars are also already primed and also painted with the green ground color. As I wanted to test the use of "glazing medium" a friend of mine gave to me, I tried the effect of that medium on some pelisses.

I´m always afraid of painting cavalry because of the horses. But this time I enjoy this paint job very much.

May the dice be with you. ;)
