War of Austrian Succession/SYW Saxon Cavalry

At long last perhaps the final unit from the treasure trove under my table is completed.  The riders were done years ago but I've completed the horses from scratch in the last month or so, using the new Contrast Paints. Not impressed as although they work quite well on horses my one attempt using them on 'men' wasn't quite to my taste, apart from which I don't want to learn yet another new painting technique. I'm too old for that now.

Anyway, here we have the Graf Rutowski Chevau Legers. Iirc the figures are from Eureka Miniatures.


  1. A fine addition Colin! I can empathise with the lack of desire to learn anything new too!

  2. Eureka have a lovely range of Saxons Colin not cheap but brilliant sculpts.They look very... Saxon. Its a shame that you didnt like the Contrasts, I must admit it took me a little while to understand how they work but I do use them a lot now. Its just practice I think.

  3. Very pretty cavalry! Mid-18th century Saxons are a favorite of mine.

    Best Regards,
