Prussian Hussars and Fathers Day

I don't have a Napoleonic Prussian army at the moment and I have no plans at the moment to paint one. However after a hiatus of about 5 months I decided to open my paint tins and have a go at a set of late war Prussian hussars. Prussian troops of the late Napoleonic period are not exactly the most exciting to paint and hussars are even worse than the infantry. So in this case with much trepidation I picked up the paint brush and proceeded to paint a squadron. The end result? Not too bad actually. The cavalry figures actually look pretty nice as a group. Although unfinished here is the pic. The finished product won't prompt me to paint a Napoleonic Prussian army anytime soon but at least I enjoyed being back at the painting table again.

I keep psyching myself up to paint a Spanish army when Hat releases them around Christmas time so hopefully the pleasing Prussians might spur me on to actually do it.

On another note, it is Fathers Day and I am going to have 삼겹살 (pork slices) for dinner. I don't know what that will do to my cholesterol or my blood pressure (I've been on medication for both - since about 2 weeks ago) but already I am sick of being a good boy.


  1. You?? On medication?? You're kidding, right? You're fifty times healthier than I am, which can only mean that, if you're on meds, I'm dying next week.

    In any case, Happy Father's Day and good luck with your Hussars.

  2. Strange eh? I guess time catches up with us in the end. I am going to be on pills to reduce my blood pressure for the rest of my natural and I am on some pretty high anti-cholesterol meds as well. I went in for my "warrant of fitness" and got told that I had failed miserably. I have got to do more exercise and change my diet as well. Hasn't been a good couple of weeks really.
