Sound the Charge!

Just a short post to show the latest additions to two of my projects: the 11th Hussars c1793 for the French army in my Wars of the French Revolution project and Emmerich's Chasseurs, a Loyalist volunteer unit for my AWI project. The Hussars are from Trent Miniatures, painted by yours truly, while the Chasseurs are from Perry Miniatures, painted by my chum Phil Robinson of Olaf'sHQ Painting Service ~

Following on from the Hussars I've now started some additional French infantry from Redoubt Enterprises for my F&IW/Sharpe Practice 2 project. Two painted so far, ten to go!

    2. My daughter is home from uni in a couple weeks so she will need to earn some money painting horses and sanding/flocking bases, of which there are many (horses and bases). Problem solved ;-)

    3. That's nearly as bad as Tory MPs employing family members at tax payers' expense... ;~)

  3. These look sharp! I love the self-satisfied expression on the trumpeter in the first unit - he's all "Hur hur hur, ladies, look at me, I'm a trumpeter, so cool"
