Austrian Cuirassiers

Recommended Posts

I've finally exhausted my Newline Designs Austrians so it's the turn of Hat to supply the Cuirassiers.
( I had the boxes in the stash already)

This group will represent three regiments so then I will have all the facing colours of the Austrian regiments, the buttons then being the only distinctions. I already have a set in progress with red facings.

It may take a little longer to complete these with the higher number.

Two of the horses were deformed on the sprue so I've added a couple of Italeri ones. The fore and rear legs of the rest had those straight bits of thick flash between them so I've recarved the lot.

 

Primed and ready to go.

I've not taken the Cuirassiers off the sprues yet, I'm saving that as a treat as I'll be impaling twenty-four of them at one go. Oh joy!

Two coats of Mocha on the horses and two coats of Linen on the sheepskins.

12 cavalry at a time are the most I can stand, so good luck and have the vallium on standby :wink:

I have done a 36. That started to get a little tedious by the end :D

The previously started regiment were getting in the way so I prepared all  four bases and used one on these. They're now drying in the flock.

With four bases of this size going to need grassing in a fairly short time I set to making a couple of tufts in different lengths, colours and size.

These are also drying out.

 

Now, back to painting.

I have nine of the horses to this stage

The blanket rolls need sorting and then they're just about done.

 

Hopefully I'll get the other 15 to this stage tomorrow :think:

As hoped the horses are done.

As I started painting this 24 I decided the previous 8 weren't good enough so I'm painting all 32 Cuirassiers. This tends to slow things down a bit and I'll probably be sick of the sight of them by the end. It's a break from repotting my collection of carnivorous plants anyway.

I've been flocking the bases so it's gardening next. The Riders are pleading to be unimpaled too.

My gardening is completed, Capability Brown would have been chuffed.

 

A sneak preview.

Once the PVA has dried and gone transparent I'll get the horses filled.

 

Now, where did I put those Grenzers :wink:
