    Lovely stuff. That is a very eye-catching uniform!

    Cheers, they were the only hussars who didn’t wear some shade of blue or green.  The dolman and pelisse are grey, the camera flash kinda washed it out.

    Very nice work. I am particularly impressed by your striped flagpole. Being an Austrophile,  I have attempted it many times in various scales, but I have never gotten it as neat as you have there.

    Thanks for looking August. I drew the bands on the pole first using a fine marker pen.

    I’ve got a soft spot for Newline and for 20mm as a wargaming size in general. I actually have a secret stash of Peninsular War Newlines awaiting the tickle of my brush. The only thing is that Sean has been very naughty about not completing some of his ranges yet!

    Ken, I haven’t got that many left. Enough until I reach saturation point and begin to crave something new.

    Henry, isn’t it always the way.  Plastics are the worst for that; always infantry, the cavalry and guns take ages to catch up, if ever. I use 20mm to supplement 1/72 plastics or if no decent 1/72 figures exist for a particular project.  I’ve got some Newline ancients I must get around to now that I remember.

    Jaegers, 20mm metal Newline Design.

    7pdr howitzers cavalry artillery, 1/72 plastic from HaT.

    Hi George,

    Nice blog you have there. I really like your Napoleonic Austrians, and you have inspired me to pain up some Palatine Hussars of my own. I paint and game in 1/72 scale too, but my collection is entirely plastic.

    Thanks, glad you like it.  I’m a plastic fan too but keep running across gaps in the ranges, hence 20mm metals.  I don’t seem able to stick to one scale, ending up buying what takes my fancy in any size.  As a result the collection is all over the place!
