    Hi all, it’s been quite a while since I have posted on here, now Kev has sorted out my password….I’ve been posting on my instagram account #paulblaber_blabsy or on Facebook.
    If anyone was interested.
    I fell for this figure when Pegaso had posted in progress pictures before release, now finally obtained one, I couldn’t help myself looking beyond the original to something else, a less studied Regiment of the British cavalry of the Napoleonic period in this scale 75mm, so after removing some detail reworking the face to my own liking, fresh headgear……I did initially forget myself and started under painting so not showing all the putty work.
    So the English dandy of a Hussar is taking shape!
    I’ll add more pictures as I go.
    Happy modelling
    Paul

    Nice start Paul, loving your additions and nice to see a Napoleonic Hussar who isn't French, will watch with interest.

    I like this figure in 150mm and painted it when it first came out - it was David Grieve's next 150mm figure after Nelson, but didn't sell well, possibly due to the tall busby. David gave up after this and has only returned to the fold relatively recently.

    Hi Paul

    Great to see you posting...a nice looking figure based on that Osprey illustration of course

    Good start on this , like the work on his moustache and sides , hair looks good as well , liking the red lining on his pelisse very “hussar”

    Look forward to seeing more on this as I’ve got a bust similar from Hawk Miniatures a Sgt in 15th Hussars which I think was also DG ...might be wrong though !

    I presume you've been near a oily motorbike looking at those nails ......lol

    Have fun @ the bench

    Following with interest

    Nice start. It's always fun to make a stock figure your own. Looking forward to watching the progress.

    Thanks everyone for your kindness taking time to comment at this early stage.
    Hopefully get a little bench time Tuesday or Wednesday?
    I under paint in Humbrols then when totally dry I start painting/shading in Humbrols I will also add an artist oils for depth occasionally and fine detail will be acrylic.
    Looking forward to it!
    Happy modelling.

    Nice to see you back at the brushes Paul and a great little figure. Will look forward to seeing the finished piece.

    The 150mm 15th Hussar mentioned by Mike will be back in stock later this year.

    It is a wonderful figure and an accomplished modeler's conversion for sure.The choice of subject is perfect.Not many people remember that there were Hussars on the other side of the Channel too (the fact that they-more often than not-used to style themselves as "Light Dragoons" didn't help either).definitely following this.
