this is my last work, the prussian hussar of Frederick the great.
Amazing!! hussar on Knappstrup... great..!! my friend!! Is this a Malachowsky regiment?
Bravo!!! breathtaking painting! Is this a comercial kit, or your own sculpt? The pose of the horse and the figure itself is wonderfull.
Very gooood Davide!!Superb horse!!!
Very good indeed ! - think it's an old Andrea release in 90mm.
Lavoro spettacolare! Complimenti!
Hello Davide, I have this kit in the grey army so the pictures will be a great help for when I get round to putting some paint on it. If I can paint to 50% of this standard I will be very pleased-Really like the colours you have used and the work on the horse is superb.
Superb paintwork Davide!
Looking forward to see it finished.
Beautiful painting on a very difficult equestrian figure. And beautiful
photographs as well. I love the idea of a spotted horse. Really adds to the
Congratulations on a lovely presentation.
Well done, Davide! I like your dappling on the horse, particularly.
Stunning painting Davide of the horse and figure.
but maybe best to stay away from the circus horses although well done.
love the suject,REALY NICE WORK!
Cracking kit too.
Bravo! Very great painting.
Beatiful paint job Davide. Ithink it´s really spectacular.
I see you've painted the 7th regiment. I do not want to seem too strict about historical accuracy, but I must say that the 7th Regiment didn´t use Colback , but Mirliton. Some sources such as Funcken, show the two types of caps for all the regiments, but this information is erroneous. Take a look at this picture of the time.
Edourdo, from which book is your colour plate from?
But he is missing something.
Very nice. Superb colouration.
Sorry billy, I don´t have the entire book. My friend Ramón Labayen bought it in Germany and I lent it to make copies of the illustrations. They are rectangular format books containing uniforms of the army of Frederick the Great.
The generic title of the series is "Die Friderizianischen Uniformen", author:Hans Bleckwenn, containing 4 volumes with the infantry, Cavalry, Artillery, freikorps etc. He uses the original uniform documentation sources.
An example of the infantry.
