28mm Perry minatures crusaders started

 this is the first post to do with a new army that I'm starting I know next to nothing about this period so i guest i'll either learn along the way or make heaps of mistakes which i hope you'll tell me about, no matter what i know that i'm going to have heaps of fun painting them.
I've decided not to wait till the end and they are all nice neat and finished but to post updates of where I'm at hope you like. as you can see there's a long long way to go yet.
cheers Galpy
I think this is about half the infantry and the first of around 40 cav

28mm front Rank Hussars ready to base

Even though i finished these guys yesterday i couldn't bring myself to put them up with all that is happening just up the road, but here they are today

I've finished painting Reg's next batch of Hussars which he wanted me to paint the same as the last lot I've actually based them ready for painting tomorrow and then grassing. I've added to new colours to my horses as i decided there wasn't enough colour variation in them so I've added a darker brown and a redder horse.

As most who follow this blog will know I'm in the midst of a large ongoing syw commission for Reg I'm working on another batch of Hussars at the moment which i'll put a progress shot at the bottom of the page, but in the mail turned up these six wee blocks and i couldn't help myself so i painted and based them yesterday as i had taken the day off work to paint, sadly i only managed half a day but still managed to do quite a bit so here they are Von Kleist Croat band they are to be used in a scenerio where they anoy the hell out of the other side who send an expidition to silence the Croats one way or another.

28mm Front Rank Hungarian Jos.Esterhazy SYW Regiment finished & based

As you can see the flags haven't been glued makes it easier to post

I finished these guys yesterday and started on the next batch of Hussars which Reg wants painted the same as the last. I've almost completed the horses. It took me a while to complete these guys as my nights have been quite full and i've also been working on me Panzer Iv's and stugs as our Day of days comp is not to far off, i also have to have two tables ready. So anyway i hope you like the finished figures. I will be also putting the pictures into the SYW gallery to the at the right hand side of the table.

New 28mm Front Rank syw Gallery

I've been painting so many  figures for Regs Austrian army and the fact that i still have the Hanovarian and British armies to go that i thought why not put them into a Gallery for easy viewing over the next couple of weeks i will put the names of the regiments under them. Hope you enjoy them The Gallery is to the right of the page just click on the image
