This is the third regiment of Danish horse I have completed, Holstenske.
That’s what I’m talking about! Red facings against the buff coats really look good. I’m happy they look pretty good in pictures too. I think I have something going on red facings. You’ll see something very red on my painting distractions blog very soon I hope.
I’d also like to call your attention to an excellent website detailing uniforms of Danish regiments during the WSS era: http://www.tacitus.nu/karoliner/armeer/danmark/kavalleri.htm
It looks like the next regiment I am working on, Wurttemberg, should be depicted with green facings. I have 3 figures done with black facings but I had no idea what to use really, so they’ll be green when you see them, hopefully not too far in the future.
One last shot of Holstenske
