I give you my version of the 1st Novoserbskiy Hussars. (They have the same uniform as the Moldavian Hussars I did earlier, so not very groundbreaking.) There were 10 Squadrons from this regiment present at Zorndorf (twice the size of the other three Hussar Regiments), so I opted to represent them with two separate regiments of 10 figures each.
I stayed with my normal color coding system for this group so the primary horse color is tan, with darker colors reserved for the commander and trumpeter.
I also opted to use Eureka Hussar models for this unit as opposed to the massive number of Blue Moon Figures I have painted to date. These models are cast as a single piece, and are fairly large in comparison. As you can see below, they dwarf their Blue Moon counterparts:
|Note: Both are advertised as "18mm"|
Thus it is time for another group photo:
The Light Brigade (Georgian, Moldavian and Horvat Hussars)
The Heavy Brigade (Prince Fedoravich Curr., 3rd Curassier, Kazan Curaissier, Archangel Dragoons)
And why not a family photo of the whole Division with the commander:
This also means that all of the cavalry for the project is now complete as well:
With just under 2 months left I still need to complete:
- 2 Stands of Artillery
- 4 large Stands of Musketeers
- 4 Small Stands of Observation Corps Musketeers
- 3 Small Stands of Observation Corps Grenadiers
Now if I can just avoid all the distractions.....
