I've finally got the last of the Brunswick cavalry cast up and painted , this has been delayed by doing other things and then my gas bottle ran out, however I've got these last 6 figures done .The regiment had originally been Dragoons but in 1759 it was given new uniforms and designated as Carabiniers .
I then turned my attention to the regimental command , here is the regiments commander and trumpeter . The uniform of the musicians doesn't seem to be recorded , so I decided on reversed colours for the coat and added lace to the coats arms . The regiment was called 'Prince Ludwig Ernst' in 1749 and I assume it carried this title on.
I also cast up a Kettle Drummer and Standard Bearer , again reversed colours for the drummer . The Standard Bearer is more appropriate for the Prussians - but I've never used this mould before so this was the chance to try it out . The Standard for this regiment isn't known so I took a guess and used the white horse and crown from the infantry colours . It's a relief to get this unit done as it's been on the go for over 6 months .
