Re: Week-end is approaching

Beautiful Brunswick hussars!

Steve, the size of the standard/guidon is a moot point as they did not carry one. That figure will need to be put to another use, if it remains.
These are more likely Prussian Hussars. but you are right the flag is superfluous
True, the 'death head' (1st life hussars), of course. I did not pay attention to the lack of plume (amazingly?!).

Hopefully that lovely standard-bearer can be adapted/recycled to another unit/type of hussar--Austrians perhaps (although only 800 x 800 mm^2 and may not have been taken into the field, though that latter point would not stop me including one).

Which is a shame as it's a really nice figure, beautifuly posed, and very natural looking.

Perhaps the mounted flag bearer could be used as part of a headquarters section.

Could be a captured French flag as IIRC these were quite small.....

Excellent sculpts and I love the refreshing new trumpeter pose

Re: Week-end is approaching

I love Strelets new sculpting style, the detail is fantastic, but it is thrown away with basic errors like a flag in a Prussian/Brunswick hussar unit and three flags per set of Brunswick Life Infantry, when none were carried.

Re: Week-end is approaching

Beautiful figures indeed !
It is an original subject very well created by Strelets. One more !
The civilians are top !
If only Strelets could do the same cavalry poses but with the French Chasseurs à cheval de la Garde !
That my friends would be so great !
Or with a French Hussars regiment ?
