SYW - Prussian Army - Seydlitz hussars - HR 08 - WIP part two


as I told you in my last post three horses had been missing for the unit. I managed to finish them last week but as we took our trip to Rhodes for holidays I wasn't able to post some pictures of the results.

So here are the horses in full strength.

SYW - Prussian Army - Seydlitz hussars - HR 08 - WIP part one


after presenting my test figure for this unit in my last post I will give a short status quo of how the work on the regiment is going on.

Until now I´ve just finished the test figure and fixed the pelisse. There are also four more horses ready and waiting for their riders and also their basing.

I will give the regiment 8 men on four bases suitable for the rules of "Maurice".

So here are some pictures about the actual WIP. I hope to get the missing three horses ready till Friday night as I will be on holidays in Rhodes next week. :)

Sorry for the bad quality of the photos.



The test figure and the five ready horses.

Another point of view.

The white or grey horse is a trial - maybe I´ve seen "Pipi Langstrumpf" a little bit too often as the horse looks like hers in the movies :)

The next three horses to paint up.

The missing riders.

The pelisses for the riders.

SYW - Prussian Army - Seydlitz hussars - HR No.8

Manufacturer:  Wargames Foundry
Scale:  28mm

Hi again,

today I´m posting a test figure of the red Seydlitz hussars of Frederick the Great´s army.

This regiment fought in the battles of Kolin, Landeshut, Rossbach, Breslau, Leuthen and so on…

If you are interested in the history of this regiment you will like the website of www.kronoskaf.com concerning this unit. http://www.kronoskaf.com/syw/index.php?title=Seydlitz_Hussars

After a long time of doing nothing for the hobby at all I would like to take up my brushes again and increase my units on the SevenYearsWar.

As I already have some French and Austrian units ready for action I thought it was time to start with the most famous units of this war and also my favorites - the Prussians.  

Though I don´t like painting horses I´m always fascinated of cavalry units especially the hussars. I love their dolmans and colors of their uniforms and that every unit looks different. So my choice was to paint up a unit of the red Seydlitz hussars first. I want to give the unit a strength of 8 hussars placed on four bases with 40mm in width and 50mm in length so the unit will be compatible with my already done units. 

So, this is my test figure on this regiment. Maybe I´ll just put on a few more highlights. The pelisse is missing but also in work.
