Black Hussar.

 There is an awful lot of quality wargaming figures coming out of Germany at the moment. I suppose its not that surprising given the history of German miniature making over the years.
 Anyway I have just received some more metal from Black Hussar of Berlin. I hope to complete a few? Prussian units painted up as Saxons in the next few months, but I also obtained the new Black Hussar civilians in the order. One can never have enough little figure bases scattered over your battlefield.Anyway here are a couple of the figures based up. They are fine figures to paint and I would definitely recommend a purchase or two from Black Hussar, especially with the Euro not being too strong.

    1. Once I work out how to paint white correctly Colin, I hope to have some Saxons on the table.

    2. IMHO you can already paint white very well. Better than my slap it on attempts anyhow. Well, we should end up with a pretty large Saxon force between us!

  2. Robbie, I've seen Black Hussar figures on other 18th century sites, I must agree they do look very good. Have just received some Crann Tara which I'm looking forward to painting up, and also Hinchliffe X-range AWI militia, just got another thirty. Both ranges are open-handed, and are very useful castings. Michael

    1. Michael, It looks like youve got a bit of a metal mountain forming there.
      The X range are a very underused resource, but contains some great figures. I have always liked the figures of the British standing to attention, very static but a lovely figure.

    2. Very true, Robbie, I had a large collection of X-range in the 1980s, sold it on. And in 2015 I am raising another. Fifty British X-range standing have already arrived, and forty grenadiers standing too. By the way, carefully removing the lightly cast lapels and they can be painted up as Spanish as they have the same format for accoutrements, but you need to paint-on barrel clips on the musket.The nco advancing in the range is a 'wrong listing' when they were first put on sale, its actually a private open-handed advancing, and Ian Hind does a banded/clip musket if you ask.

    I like the Prussians but not keen on the French think the heads are too big!!

    1. Morning Graham,
      The civilians are very nice and will go well with the wagons. I know what youre saying about the French, but then they always had big heads. So historically they are spot on.

  4. They look excellent. I think they might provide 'good company' for my CT British commanders base. (A bit like Napoleon and De Coster?)
