Prussian Dragoons .


I have finished painting the Dragoons for my O.S. Prussians , as this is the last unit for the planned army - they are officially finished !.


They are the Dragoon Regt. No.13 Schleswig-Holstein. I only have to do the French Chasseurs D'Africa now to complete the task. Foundry do some rather nice dismounted figures for the FPW  and I'm wondering if they will match my Spencer Smith foot figures ?.

  2. Fine work, but what is this 'finished' you mention for an army?

    1. Ah ! a strange concept I agree in gaming terms . Perhaps the end of part 1 is more accurate .

  3. Part 2 may be close!

    Peter has just announced the first releases of the new year.
    Bavarian Cuirassier, Bavarian Artillery and best of all a new range for 1859 Austrians. German and Hungarian Infantry and Jaegers in the first batch.

    I have not seen them yet but they are on the site and look pretty good.

    I don't want to be discouraging but the foundry figures are quite small and squat in comparison. I had hopes of using their generals set but gave it up as a bad job. You might feel differently but I wouldn't recommend buying too many sight unseen.

    Finally I like the Prussians, you have nailed the look in my opinion.

    1. Yes I've seen his new figures and plan to get some of the Austrians later in the year (when I've got some of my other projects tidied up) , may try and order the odd foundry figure off ebay to compare them .
