SYW: Hessian Cavalry (2)

Here is the second Hessian Horse regiment - Miltitz/Oheim in it's later cuirassier uniform without the cuirasse but with the sabretache I mentioned in the previous post. There were four Hessian Horse regiments, each of two squadrons, and this one, with it's twelve figures, is stronger than the previous one - for no particular reason but perhaps it has just received new recruits. At the beginning of the SYW these two squadrons totally 360 men but after the changes in 1760 had grown (on paper at least) to 400 men.

The next regiment I'll be painting will be a dragoon regiment.
