AB British Hussars
In my attempt to keep my armies made up of the same figure manufacturer (or at minimum, the 18mm scale) I parted with my tried and trusted Battle Honors KGL hussars recently and bought some AB British hussars and light dragoons. Only the Hussars have been finished so far.
As with all AB figures, they paint up quite well. I used a different blue on these figures and like how it turned out (Vallejo Model Master Dark Blue). A simple drybrush of white on the raised areas over the black primer gives this a deep blue look without looking like a Prussian blue. One white horse... still don't think I got it quite right!
