Finished ! .


Well I've finally got them finished ! - I had to wait till I'd got some more brown 'Bastex' too finish off the bases , that's the last of the Austrian cavalry done and gets over my phobia of painting Hussars - see - http://tonystoysoldiers.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/manning-up-and-doing-worthy.html.


The uniform is of the 2nd Regt. of Hussars Archduke Joseph . This gives me a total of 36 figures for this regiment - Austrian Cavalry units were very large compared to other nation's .


To celebrate their completion I painted up a Brigadier to lead them - this is a 'Front Rank' figure slightly bigger but matches the Foundry figures not to bad ! . This leaves only one Austrian Line Battalion and a French Chasseur a Cheval to paint up .

    1. Think the red shako was one of the reasons to choose that regiment , Tony
