Borbonic Hussar of Royal Cavalry 1860

Some weeks passed after my latest post, but I didn’t stop painting at all! I simply didn’t take any picture of the painting progress, so I can only but share the final photos.

This is a very old miniature that was distributed in 2006 by the “Catania CSMS Club” during the International Figure Competition of Catania. No I didn’t attend that event, I simply received this piece from a friend of mine and I managed to paint it now as I liked the subject and the overall posture.

The original name of this miniature is this:
Esercito Borbonico
Cavalleria della Guardia Reale
Secondo Tenente del 1^ Reggimento Ussari in piccola tenuta, 1860

and it was superbly sculpted in 54mm scale by Maurizio Bruno.

To be honest I am not very satisfied with the final outcome. The scale is small and I feel I am not much experienced with this small scale (maybe I am getting a bit too old for the small size…), anyway this is what it is and I’ll likely take other similar challenges in the future.

In the mean time, here are some photos.
