From JohnM: Napoleonic Prussian 1st Lieb Hussars (80 points)


From John we have a great unit of Prussian 'Death's Head' Hussars. Two squadrons from this regiment were present at Waterloo with the First Corps.



These are 28mm Calpe castings. John really liked the Seven Years War version of their flag and so included it with this unit (I believe it is by 'Flag Dude'). The standard is being held by a converted trooper. I think John did a really nice job on the black uniforms, which can be a bit tricky.


These lads will give John 80 points - pulling him ahead of Fran. ;)  Lovely unit, John.
