My Napoleonic French light cavalry get some reinforcements this week with two stands of French Chasseurs a Cheval off the painting desk. The figures are by Baccus.
Not that you can tell, but the red collars and cuffs identify most of these guys as being from the 1st Regiment, with a few of the 2nd mixed in. The bases are laser cut MDF from Six Squared Studios and the flocking material is from Baccus. When I started basing the collection I bought in 2014, I was trying to get as many based as possible, and so the flocking was pretty basic. Now I feel I can spend a bit more time making the bases look good.
Ready to screen the army from the probing eyes of Kaiserlich hussars.
Another project finished this week is this stand to represent a small town. The two buildings are from Timecast and together they form the town of Alte Schlompburg.
The roads are my own creation, cardboard coloured with pastel crayons. I think I need to lighten them up more to better match the road painted on the town base. I also think I need many many more road sections.
After a night carousing in Alte Schlompburg, the chasseurs prepare to ride away, leaving much broken crockery and a few broken hearts.
Many thanks for looking, and blessings to your brushes!
