30mm War of the Spanish Succession Prussian Szekely Hussars (Spencer Smith miniatures)
I painted sample figures for several regiments of War of the Spanish Succession Hussars and showed them here previously. Here is a full regiment, twenty four figures, of Prussian Szekely Hussars.
The figures are from Spencer Smith miniatures and have a "toy soldier" feel. None of the details are present on the model. Everything from "Wolves teeth" on the saddle blankets, to bags and lace on busbies has to be painted on. Painting these figures is a lot more work than painting conventional wargame figures, where detail is on the model and often raised to make painting easier. It takes a long time to turn these ugly ducklings into swans.
