Prussian Red Hussars



















Not as promised, to paint faster the miniatures for the next time, is our today´s presentation of the Prussian Red Hussars, the HR 8. The miniatures are of Matthias Manske, out of his new range of Hussars and horses. Really great to paint and heavy in the weight!
They fall into a skirmish with Polish lancers here..



































A try with the Pano-function of my mobile....

and the Polish lancers, also Matthias Manske figures...

  3. Great figures and pictures as always. I suspect there are dragoons who are jealous because of the horses of the Hussars.

    1. The dragoons hand´t this kind of horses, called "Mirabellen", as I could read at the Brauer Bogen - I like their color also very much! Thank you for your kind comment, Ross, very appreciated!

  4. Peter, Wonderful painting and amazing photographs.
    Your Blog is much appreciated by AMG Members.
    I have just taken a photo of my Red Hussars to post on my blog. The photo will not be as dynamic and lifelike as your productions.
    Regards

  9. Wonderfully atmospheric photos. I particularly like the profile shots as they convey the feeling of speed in the charge.

    1. Even the figures are not so detailed, I like our scale of 40mm very much - you can go closer with the camera for shots. Thank you so much for this comment, Chris!

  10. Peter, wonderful unit, love the composition of the photos, like the colour of the horses and the flag, altogether a great sense of the impending clash.

  11. Dear 'Scheck’,
    Not sure if I have ever commented on your Blog.
    It is just brilliant. Its a collection of most pretty miniatures I see here. And it is awesome, so much inspiring photography (& additional very artistic photoshop work – I would suppose)
    In short – great stuff, and thank you so much for sharing it.
    Cheers,
    Christian

  13. Your blog is very inspiring. Where do you get the "fur" that you use for your battlefields? Can you describe the method of creating your battlefields for us? (As well as buildings)?

    1. Hi Captain Nolan! Thank you for your kind comment!.The furmat is an artificial format (as for teddybears for example). The hair is cut to make different field and meadow effects. Then dry brush it in the colors you prefer, depending on the warfare season you want to do. That´s all, in short words.
      see here my former post:
      http://scheckssyw.blogspot.de/2012/08/new-gameboard-finished.html
      The buildings are made of styrofoam, then given a dark base and dry brushed...
      Hope that helps - don´t hesitate to ask for more details!!
