28mm SYW Prussian Cuirassiers

Here are a couple of SYW Prussian Cuirassier units that needed some finishing touches.
The flag/vexillum, sabretaches, minor details and basing were completed last weekend and they have come up quite well.
Foundry figures.

The Gardes du Corps only had 3 squadrons but I gave them the standard 12 figures.

The Friedrich von Brandenburg Cuirassiers were a solid unit with combat service against the Russians and had a nice colour scheme. One figure lost his if anyone happens to have a spare...­čśü

I'm working on some infantry next, then perhaps some artillery.

  1. Superb looking cavalry Mick, love the cuirassiers's colors...

  2. Fantastic! They look like they can do damage! (Dice permitting...!)
    I'll have a look through my spares box for an arm, you never know!
    Though Perhaps just an unfortunate casualty of a stray cannon ball!

  3. Hi Mick - would you mind dropping me a line to talk about some of your beautifully painted W├╝rttembergers please? I'm on mark.owen at, guinny at gmail, or Thanks!
