I was a touch over-optimistic about how far I'd get with the hussars today. In my defence, that could be because this is double the number that I've painted in one go previously and there is a lot of fiddly detail to paint.
However, I did get them very close to completion and should be able to finish them tomorrow night. Here's a pic of them as they are now:
All that's left are lacing on the Novoserbskiy (blue/red) guys, straps on the blanket rolls, edging on the shabraques, flesh highlights some minor touch-ups and the metals.
In other news, my Nubians got posted today, earning me 453 points which puts me in 8th place for now, but I expect people to bump me back down as the week goes on.
