Big Tricorne Post Number Three


I've finally had the spirits and determination to push through a pile of plastic again, and have completed ten Zvezda SYW Hussars, sixteen Swedes as WSS Austrians, a similar number of Strelets foot as WSS French, and eight Strelets horse as Saxon Guard horse.



It's quicker to paint figures with a black undercoat, especially the crude Strelets ones, otherwise it's all the same method. I added a second layer of highlights on the white coats of the Austrians.



Of the ten Zvezda hussars, the officer and trumpeter will form an officer stand, the rest is the traditional 8-figure unit.



These figures ride the surplus Zvezda GNW Russian horses except one, and they are the horse grenadiers and carabiniers organised to one unit.
