Final new hussar preview

Well, it's been quite a slog but it's nearly finished - here is the final preview of the new hussar template, shown here as Prussian Regiment No.2 Von Zieten. As you can see, all that need to be done now are the sabretache straps and the fiddly hanging braid on the fur cap. This template will form the basis of a number of hussar variants but the devil is in the detail with hussar uniforms so it will not be as easy creating each variant as it is for most infantry uniforms.


  1. David,

    We're coming to take you away, ha ha!
    We're coming to take you away.

    Verily, you'll pay.
    I know that you will.
    Lo, it will so come to pass
    Evil deeds will . . .

    Strike your Town of
    And it is your fault
    Go weep in fear
    Only yourself to blame
    No one else cares
    I guarantee the end of
    All your tailor dreams.

    -- Koenig Maurice

    (note the clever first letters)

  2. Looking wonderful David!

    Best Regards,


  3. Thanks, Murdock and Stokes. :-)


  4. Do you really think
    Evil Stagonia
    And her even more evil king
    Tittering and scheming and threatening
    Has any chance of doing a thing?

    Tyrants never prosper long
    Others gather to right the wrong

    So carry on making your bluster
    Tattle-head empty-brained thing
    After you've run away screaming
    Gone into exile and dreaming
    Of days when your reign meant something
    Now you'll repent your false lustre
    In grief and misery, King
    And never forget Tippelbruder - the small town with a large sting.

    Seen scrawled on a wall in Tippelbruder, November 1757.

  5. Nice work as usual.
    But why does he wear his underwear outside his trousers?

  6. Thanks, FB.

    I'm not sure that's something you'd want to say to his face! ;-)

  7. Brilliant with colors!

    Best Regards,


  8. Thanks, Stokes - it does improve them rather, doesn't it? :-) (But I think the blue may be a little too bright for Reg. No.2...)

    All the best,


  9. Will we soon see the colored versions of the uniforms for the Count's Freikorps?

  10. Hi Jeff,

    I posted them a while ago on Freistadt Tippelbruder - they're here (it's a bit of a rough image but it will do for the moment!):
