Inspired partly by this painting by my friend Chris Gregg I decided this week to finish my War of the Austrian Succession/Seven Years War Saxon Uhlans. I've had the figures for at least four years but never seemed to get beyond the undercoat stage.
The Uhlanen were maintained by the Polish Commonwealth and hired into Saxon service. They participated in all campaigns from 1757 onwards. Initially they served with the Austrian armies, later on with the Reichsarmee in Saxony. There were two regiments, Graf Renard and Graf Rudniki (pictured above). The only difference in uniform distinctions was that Renard wore red in place of the blue of Rudniki.
