Hungarian Hussar Regiments

Five Hungarian Hussar regiments, these are painted by Reinforcements by Post. I have two “in progress” that’s being painted by me, it takes a while due to all the details and I feel that I need to match or surpass the Hussars painted by RbP .

Hungarian Line Infantry Regiments

I am hoping for a Black Powder gaming night, so I am in the middle of taking inventory of my 15mm Napoleonics. I am using the opportunity to take pictures of what I have, so expect irregular updates with new pictures as I work through the various units.

First up are the Hungarian component of the Kaiserliche-Königliche Heer. They are a mix of what I painted just over 20 years ago, and some I bought from Reinforcements by Post. I think that the miniatures painted by Reinforcements by Post are great value for money, sadly he doesn’t do commissions anymore.

I need to touch up the ones I have painted and change their facing colors since I have duplicates, they could also do with two additional bases per unit bringing them up to 8 bases per unit as I have standardized on.

Unarmored Hoplites

Four bases of unarmored Hoplites.

The last base is made up of the rear rankers I cut of from the AGR 8a Unarmored Hoplites Attacking strips. I also closed up the ranks quite a bit.

Next up should be more hoplites

Hoplite basing conundrums

I have been struggling with basing the Baccus attacking hoplites.

As you can see on the hoplite base to the bottom right in the picture the hoplites are based on strips with pretty generous spacing while the Roman Hastati in the left upper corner have tighter spacing. Another issue is the lack of space in the front of the hoplites. This would make these very different from all the other bases in the project.

I decided to rebase the hoplites into the formation you see on the other two hoplite bases in the picture. Its somewhat of a hassle doing this since the rear rank is individual miniatures.

 

Greek Peltasts

Eight bases of Greek Peltasts based as Light Infantry.

I tried Army Painter Quickshade (Strong Tone) on these. Not pleased with the result so I am going back to my own recipe which is more of a wash than a “dip”. I tried thinning the Quickshade with some turpentine but it didn’t really help.

Thessalian Light Cavalry

Its been incredibly hot so my painting slowed to a crawl. I measured 35 celsius (95 f) in my hobby room at one point, so I went outside and did something else for a while :).

That said I have finished 7 bases of Thessalian Light Cavalry that will serve as both Thessalian and generic “Greek” light cavalry.

Next up are several units of Greek Peltasts.
