SYW 3rd Prussian Dragoons



Third Prussian Dragoons of the SYW. Figures by Foundry with the usual horse problems.
But pink facings on a blue coat are very pretty.

Saxon Infantry (Infantry at last, I'm fed up with cavalry!) next week and for the next few weeks.

12th Herzog von W├╝rttemberg Dragoons


This is the third Prussian Dragoon Regiment I have painted recently and I'll do another one next week.
It will be nice to return to infantry again after spending hours cleaning up Foundry horses. Including those hussars, I will have painted 25 squadrons of Prussian SYW cavalry.

SYW: Prussian Yellow Hussars





The 7th Malachowski Hussars were also known as "die Gelben"(the Yellows). Some of its squadrons served in the Western theatre.
The figures are by Foundry and are very nice, if difficult to assemble. They come in four parts -the horse, lower-body on the shabraque, upper body and pelisse. Of course there were no standards carried on campaign but they provide the figures and it would be a shame to waste them.
