    I have had the Colonel Burthe 4th Hussars bust for a while and picked up the Hussar Trumpeter recently at SMW2021, just need the Eagle Bearer to complete the trio and mount them all together. Think this will be a long project, so may intersperse with other projects.

    Burthe's horse was painted with the airbrush using Vallejo Air acrlyics, Trumpeters horse has had the basic areas defined, also witht the airbrush - this is because i will finish him using oils, and will do the same with Burthe's steed. Both faces have had a base colour airbrushed with Tamiya Flesh/flat brown and highlights with white added;

    I don't envy your challenge, following with interest. I am tempted by the 75mm trumpeter though.

    Following with interest. I really like the Eagle bearer can't wait to see him added to the mix. How is the parts count and clean up?

    Got some oils on the horse, just a palette mix of Mars black, Titanium White and Yellow Ochre. Lows and mids painted, so need to add some white highlights probably in a couple of days but going to leave this one as a grey though. While he is drying i will get 'Burthes' mount painted.

    Good start. Rather like the grey horse so far. Are you going to dapple him?

    I think it's a good idea. Going to try it on my 75mm version when I get to it.

    Very nice start to this project Steve, the Eagle bearer was made to go with these two and will make an impressive addition to this pair especially with you painting skills applied. Should be new stock in the next couple of weeks. Following this one with great interest.

    Cheers

    Started on the dappling (right side), not sure if to go all over the throat though, got the left side to do.
