Saxon Chevauxlegers "Prinz Albrecht"















Next Saxon cavalry regiment finished: Prinz Albrecht Chevauxlegers, which had cold grey coats and fir green turnbacks. Following Dr. Stephen Summerfield, this regiment was stationed in Poland during the warfare of the Prussians in 1756 and avoided the fate of the Saxon units captured at Pirna. Later in the SYW, they served with the Austrian army (Kolin, Breslau, Leuthen).
They wore first the grey uniform, which was taken later by the Feldjaeger corps.
A combination of Irregular miniatures (troopers) and Sash and Saber (command).

  9. Beautifully painted figures, let down by the flags that look like they have come off a printing press. Rather than hand painted in the province of the regiment.

    1. That is a good note about the flags - the red comes out very brilliant - even more than in reality..
      Thank you, John!

    1. Dear Chris, thank you so much for your kind words! The grass effect is made by my fur mat. I cute the artificial fur hair in different lengths - that´s all!
