Prussian Halloween Hussars

Completed 12 Death's Head hussars, I was a bit apprehensive of painting black uniforms but a bit gray drybrushing seems to have done the trick. Figures by AB, no flags since the hussars didn't carry them. These guys did not take part in the 100 days but played a role in Germany 1813 and then in France 1814. Every Prussian army must have this unit!

Light infantry command bases

I've just completed  some 2nd, 3rd and 4th battalion command stands with fanions, you may have noticed that the PVA has yet to dry out. These are AB's with flags from fighting15s, the designs I believe actually belong to a line regiment - for my line regiments I will just use white and red fanions (from GMB).  WIP includes AB Prussian hussars and a load of old glory greatcoated French.

Portuguese Line Infantry

These are Old Glory figures and turned ok I think. Based same way as the Nassau troops with two 30x40 and two 20x30 bases. Again there is just enough for two units at this scale. The flags are by GMB and I'm waiting for some to come in the post to complete the other unit. They are a bit boring because according to my research they did not have any special distinctions for the elites (light or grenadiers). They can also double up as belgian troops for 1815.

2nd Regiment Nassau

Got sick of painting blue tunics so thought I try green for a change! These are Old Glory figures and the flags are by GMB. The only change was to use 20x30 bases for the flank companies.  The smaller base size  is more flexible in terms of creating different unit sizes. The advantage of these guys is that they can be used for peninsular as french  allies and of course for the hundred days as allies of the British!

One OG pack was enough to make two battalions.
