The third cavalry regiment to be painted in May was another Prussian, this time the 5th Dragoons and another regiment that was part of the Ist Corp 1st Cavalry Brigade. These again are Adler and leaves me with just the one more Dragoon Regiment for the Prussians to paint up.
Again lovely animation and the usual mix of two slightly different poses helps give the imprecision of movement. I have been adding ten figures rather than the usual nine on the last three bases but will go back to nine from here as it is a bit cramped.
Lots of detail as always from Adler and really well defined. The clean up was not too bad and this time basing them was not too difficult as they stood up better, possibly because I spent a bit more effort on filing the bases in clean up?
Again this regiment had mounted Jagers attached adding a nice green to the light blue of these Dragoons. I was really happy with the results on this base as they were done reasonably quickly and the black base coat really suited these figures. Painting over the shako's with Black Grey leaving some of the original black showing really worked.
Whilst the command figures have not all been fully finished I have still managed to paint up three French Battalions and finally started two more Zulu regiments for Matt. I still have two days left in May so should make a deep indent into some more figures before the month is out.
