A Last Hussar…

And finally(!), here are the nearly finished Esci Hussar figures (save for a little work on the horses). I might put them forward for the BFFFWP or otherwise build up a small regiment of both types. It’s been fun working on these figures, if something of a challenge too. There may, however, be one last thing to do. These Esci figures portray horses without a sheepskin blanket roll cover. This invites the possibility of a small conversion using some modelling clay and glue. I may leave them for now but come back to them again to attempt this at some later date.

In the meantime, on to the next figures! Which will be…? Well, I may have a go at some more of these hussars and I have a few Scots Greys to add to the others I’ve just done. But then there’s also these figures that have just come through the post:

And as one final mention of all things hussar related, I visited an excellent museum in 2013 dedicated to the 10th and 11th Hussars (and their successor regiments), called Horsepower in Winchester. It was well worth a visit for anybody with an interest in cavalry and military history, not least due to the lack of any entrance fee!
