Giant Commission -- Prussian Heavy Cavalry

Ah, heavy cavalry!  I always like to mount my heavy cavalry on darker horses to make them look more menacing.  Glenn has decided to add some more bases to these, so the Prussian army is not quite done, but it's very close.

1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Cuirassiers

Mr. Barton has sculpted these figures in their dark blue Litewka, which they would have worn in the field.  Only the officer is depicted in white coat.

1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th Dragoons

The Dragoons wore a light blue Litewka, and sources depict that shade everything from a sky blue to a deep cornflower.  I settled for the middle ground, painting Delta's "Liberty Blue" over their "Blueberry."

I'm just waiting on a Eureka order, and I will paint up the rest of the cavalry.

Austerlitz for Little Wars

Glenn is putting on the battle of Austerlitz at Little Wars this weekend.  He sent on these pictures of the troops I painted for him.  Enjoy!

It is very nice to see these figures on the battlefield.  Thanks, Glenn!

Giant Commission -- Prussian Jager

Glenn bought 36 Prussian Jager, 18 marching and 18 skirmishing.  These are VERY nice sculpts.  I always like to see light troops in both stances.

The sword bayonets are especially well done on the marching figures, complete with tasseled lanyard.

This completes the Prussian infantry!  It took me just 7 weeks to finish up 612 figures.  On to the artillery!
