The first up is the 6th Ulan's with their distinctive black uniform, these are I guess some of the Elite of the Prussian cavalry and will be a nice foil to the other two regiments I have painted up to go with them.
Each regiment is of nine figures and in all three cases I started with a black base coat but even the black uniform was treated to touching up with Vallejo black grey so that they would have some depth. Unlike all the other figures I added the ink wash only to the skin and the horses themselves.
Next up the 1st Silesia Landwehr cavalry with there far more common blue jackets and grey trousers. The figures are similar to the Ulan's but subtly different. So close that you can get away with mixing the two if you wanted to add even more different poses to the base.
I really like the way Lion sculpts his figures giving them a real feel of movement. This could not be better illustrated than how he has done the pennants on the lances.
The last of the cavalry is the 1st Pomeranian Landwehr Regiment all dressed in grey, three different shades of grey though!. So with these boys done this ends my commitment to the Prussian's at Waterloo though I still have plenty of other Prussian cavalry waiting for me to paint up including yet more Landwehr.
White and black pennants and white collars and cuffs mark these as rather interesting figures and really contrast to the colour of the bases.
Wow! What an amazing achievement Ian! Three years at approximately six units a week? That is seriously impressive. As usual, your work in this scale continues to amaze. I find the Adler cavalry a real treat to work with and you've really played to their strengths. I particularly like the pennons on the Landwehr lances - they provide an interesting contrast to the typical cavalry of the period.
Well, with this project coming to a close I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with your newfound freedom! Again, congratulations Ian!
