Russian Hussars - Irkhutsk


This is my second regiment of russian hussars, the first one I painted as the Akhtyrsk, and for this second unit I chose another regiment of spectacular colors, the Irkhutsk. I have another 3 boxes of this superb set by Zvezda, so one of them will be Guard, the other 2 I'm still thinking about. One of them is probably going to be the Isoum, as I quite like their all-grey look.

I wasn't able to find a single visual reference of colors for the pennants on their lances, so I indulged in some artistic license here and went with raspberry + yellow.

  2. Thanks, gentlemen. Zvezda kits do half the job, they're amazing.

  3. Those Zvezda lancers are beautifully sculpted, as you say, and your painting makes them superb.
    There's a discussion about Russian hussar lance pennants here, with some useful links:
