Transylvanian Renaissance Hussars

Another simple post.  I bought these as samples at Britcon as I am think of building a Transsylvanian ally for an Early German Protestant army of the TYW.



They are 15 mm figures from Donnington and I really enjoyed painting them.  The codes are EC04 & 06 on TYH06.  I’ll be using them as “Bow, Sword” Light Horse.

I particularly liked how the faces turned out on these figures:




Here’s my inspiration and some more photos:



I’m sorry I can’t give source for the book this came from.  The image was found via a Google image search and there was just the image; so no web page with details. If you know where it’s from leave a comment.
