Hat - Lutzow Uhlans

Posted by Bramble15 on 01 Dec 2017, 23:17

Even though these older figures are not that great, once painted and presented they kind of grow on you. At least for me. I have one more box left that will eventually become Prussian Uhlans.

Very nice Prussian unit ! The Lützow colors are a real challenge IMO, and you've done a great job.

These look great, you've really put some life into them. The way you've painted the black uniforms is most interesting.

Actually I like that set, i think they are good looking figures. The only problem I can see with the set is that the sword is much too big for the figures. It's the perfect size for modifying some Strelets personality figures though.

I remember buying this set and other Hat produced figures from Langleys a toy shop in Norwich. That was way back in the day of 2003. Well on reaching home and unpacking them i noticed some so and so had pinched a sprue from each box.I took them back and the owner refunded my money and let me keep what was in the 8 boxes for my trouble. So the free boxes are still here upon my shelf. A good memory to remember. BB

It look very well paint for Hät figures to my eyes.
And the small variation in the position of the horse. :thumbup:
Look for me more realistic as correct side by side set rows of attackers.

I am far away to be an expert of that time frame. But if I saw the pic for the first time I get the same impression.

With HaT figures, I always think they're going to look decent but getting them to look really good is going to be a greater challenge, so it's nice to see them appearing as good as your figs. I do like the black uniforms which, from the pics, appear that a grey highlight has been added and given them a bit of depth?

Nice work, Bramble! :thumbup:

The PSR review on these has put me off acquiring the set. Seeing these painted up so well, I'm tempted to get them.
I think I'd be making three more lances and ditching the swords.

Very nice indeed.

I chopped the heads off and replaced them with Hat prussian artillery heads and used the Hat Prussian hussar horses.

The result was most satisfactory.

Best wishes,

@C M Dodson - Hmmm, sounds workable considering I have another box of Uhlans and two of the Hussars! Can you post photos? would love to see the end result.

Well - you did a nice paintjob. :-)
But those figures are still absolutely awkward. :-(

I suppose that these would do much better: http://www.schmaeling.de/napoleonischer-krieg/preussen/preussische-landwehr/642/preussische-landwehr-kavallerie?c=81

Looks like you extended the lances a bit? Really great work!

I know what you mean Sascha, but on the other hand we were pleased that Hat started making these figures. Untill then there wasn't much choice on the market! ;-)

Great work on the painting of these figures Rich! Well done! :thumbup:

Thanks for the comments guys.

@ vellek - sorry to disappoint but nope! Nothing done to the lances or the pennants. I contemplated making both from scratch but I really just wanted to get these guys painted. Up to that point I had taken a break from painting (summer break) and just wanted to get back into the swing of things. I knew if I did that I would procrastinate even more!!!!!
