The small batch of Prussians are finished and I am happy with the result. Now I can organse getting the rest of them done (28 cav, 16 gun crew and maybe 150+ infantry). Currently I have 12 cav and 100 (5 Regt) odd infantry painted and when the rest are finished this should increases to 48 cavalry, 4 guns and 260 infantry ( 13 Regt)
Below are the Officer and a crewman of Prussian Foot Artillery. I quite like these figures and I quite like Prussians. It is odd how for 17 odd years I just ignored Prussians and Austrians and knew absolutely noting about them. I guess the Brits and French always got the limelight :) as I was guilty of the usual Napoleanic startup of Imperial Guard, lancers, Cuirrassiers etc..
I beleive the model below is Blucher (Old Glory so a Prussian personality pack)so I will need to adjust his hair as he looks in his early 20's at the moment. I have also only undercoated the horse (I hate horses) but have picked up some tips so will hopefully improve on it.
My Victrix Nepolitans have been undercoated - I forgot the tedium of all white uniiforms (Those 100 odd westphalians soon dissapeared into my memory) so have decided to paint some Russians at the same time. Doing 16 figures in one job - 8 Russe and 8 Naples. Started with command and the voltiguers just so the colour gets in there. I will mix things up with some campaign "non regulation items" to give some variety. When these are done it should give me a whopping 16 Infantry Regt as well as 12 Cavalry units eeek.
And behold ! The Destroyer of Worlds -- Arabella in her campaign uniform with Teddy insignia and light blue gaiters :)
