Saxon Cuirassiers Koeniglicher Prinz


 The officer of this regiment is standing around here quite a while (I guess: 2 years?!) without his own regiment. So, it´s time to give him his lads. It´s the next component to increase the Saxon army by cavalry units.
Today I finished the regiment "Koeniglicher Prinz", which is outstanding with its lapels in bleumourant. The figures are of Irregular Miniatures and of Manske Zinnfiguren. Flags are made by following the templates of Stephen Summerfield´s wonderful book: "The Saxon Army" - I got one of the last books he had.
As you see, also the photo-shooting goes with the seasons - the Cuirassiers are approaching in a grey autumn morning...

    1. Thank you, Michael - the "diying blue" was à la mode at this time and not so oftenly found. I like it really in uniforms.

    1. Indeed, Robbie, I adore the work of Ian Kay - it´s not the first order I did at him. We have a nice contact by mail and I hope to help him - so far I am able to - being more known. Thanks for your comment!

    1. They have a difficult challenge against the Prussian superiority and need some reinforcement.. I will let follow some other cavalry regiments soon.
