Pavlograd Hussars

The Pavlograd Hussars are finished, somewhat latter than I had anticipated but ready for action nonetheless. This is the first unit I have painted in the Hut where the temperature of an evening is currently around 10-15 degrees but then these Russian chaps should be used to a slight chill in the air.

They do look very colourful and were fun to paint. The castings are copies (of unknown origin) of RN.38 Russian Hussar (mounted) charging. In my previous post on these figures I mentioned that the plumes had been cut off, but I was wrong as the figure never had plumes – thanks to the Archduke for pointing this out.

I’m not sure what section of the lead pile to tackle next but I’m thinking it may be something French.
