Since the required troops dovetails with the units I have been painting for the Quatre Bras scenario, I thought I'd expand on a few units to fill in the 'cavalry gap' for 1815.
Here are two stands of Prussian Hussars, straight from the Silesian province of Prussia. Dressed in the brown jacket with yellow facings of the 2nd Silesian Hussars, they will help fill in the need for light cavalry in the Prussian army to be fielded.
All ready to go, maybe a bit heavy on the brown ink final coat
The first are to the left in the photo.
The other heavy cavalry stand represents the 2nd (Belgian) Carbineers, who sport a crested helmet, red epaulettes and red facings on a dark blue coat. The red is from Blick art supplies acrylic range, 'deep red' and the blue is again the opaque blue. The silver on the helmet is from a artist tube acrylic.
