They will represent the 2nd Regiment of Hussars in our games. Ideally I'd like some Chasseurs too to comprise a small Light Cavalry Brigade, but Trent don't do any. The Eureka ones are nice, but rather small and very expensive I think. I saw some by Foundry on a visit last year, in the non-Perry Napoleonic collections, so I'll take another look later in the year at them again. Some close ups now, which should disabuse any of you of the notion that I can paint a bit!

The figure on the left in the picture immediately above is my favourite pose of the six, he really does look like he's about the strike down an opponent. A shame it will be me rolling his dice though... Finally a close up of one of the faces. I realy do like the characterisation Matt bought to this range.
Figures are by Trent Miniatures and the MDF bases and movement trays by Warbases. I've also made a start on the first four figures of the last French Infantry Battalion: the Colonel, a drummer and two fusileers. I hope to finish these 24 figures before the holiday hoves into view later next month. We'll have to see how it goes. A Bientot mes amis!
