Texas Hussars: Done at last

The Texas Hussars clearly showing off their shields
I guess it didn't take that long to complete them, but the Texas Hussars are finished.  I painted the adarga's black, as the Murillo prints showed, and the Spanish coat of arms as with the sabretache.  I may go with the blue on the cuera lancer.
More from the front

Frankly, I'm pleased.  They look nice and were relatively easy to build and paint.

You should feel justifiably pleased. They look great and you finished them quickly. BTW, I didn't see the sabretache in the Murill0 illustration - nice job though! Best, Dean
