Saxon Cuirassiers Von Arnim


This is the second Saxon cavalry unit, ready for the first maneuvers in the Saxon-Bohemian mountains, scouting Prussian Hussars approaching the borderline.
The regiment "Von Arnim" has the typical Saxon crimson red on the lapels and makes a good contrast to the first Cuirassiers, the "Koeniglicher Prinz".
The figures are of Irregular Miniatures (Cuirassiers) and of Manske Zinnfiguren (Command).
The light in Bavaria is grey and the weather is cold - so you see, the shooting goes with the seasons...

    1. Thanks, Tony! I am always in doubt if more standards by regiment would give a better effect. - maybe I will try that with the Hussars.

    1. Dear Steve, thank you for this comment! It is not easy to find out the exact colors sometimes - I have different sources (one of them is the book of Stephen Summerfield) with different indications. So it´s always a try..
