I have to sandwich these in between other projects as I do not want to rush the job painting these figures.
That said, the Hinterland Hussar figures are fun to paint up. Lots of detail.
A few days ago the grand-daughters got a look at their 'work in progress' Hussar
figures. One comment, "Grandpa, that's not black" said one as she
viewed her figure's coat. Tough customers, those six year olds! Honest, I had only done the charcoal base coat, not the final black wash!
One (on the right) will have a black coat with dark grey skirt and black busby with red busby bag and petticoat. There will be another (in center) with black coat , busby and bag as above grey skirt and purple petticoat. The third (on the left) will be a blue coat with a purple skirt, white petticoat, busby and busby bag as the others.
