2nd Silesian Hussars Work in progress


Recently I have been quite busy with historical reenacting and visting lovely Bavaria. However, here comes an update on the 6th regiment Hussars, or the 2nd Silesian! Some pictures of the first squadron:

From left to right: Trompeter, Offizier, Freiwillige Jäger, two hussars and Unteroffizier

Most of the hussars are wearing covered shakos. The freiwillige Jäger is wearing a Feldmütze.  Note that  only the jäger has a cover on his sabretache. I wanted to have some colour and "prunk" (splendour) so other than the sabretaches they are in campaign dress.

The converted caparison (horse furniture) came out quite well! 
Next cavalry project will be the Silesian national cavalry. Basically functioning like hussars, similarly equipped - to support my infantry brigades.

  1. Looks great! The prussian shakos look good on those hussar bodies. And the cap on the guy in the front rank is a nice touch.

    1. Thank you very much! Only problem is, I need the same heads for my musketeers, fusiliers, jägers and schützen...

      I really love the feldmütze on the Freiwillige Jäger, I may have to include more of those in my division.
