Light Infantry Carabiniers

Another batch of Napoleonic French off the workbench with a group of six Carabiniers to join their Voltigeur colleagues painted last week.

Again all six figures are from the Perry Miniatures range.

I buggered up a bit on the grey greatcoats, I had planned to paint them in VMC French Horizon Blue, and indeed did the basecoat in that colour, but when I came to re-apply the basecoat like a doofus used VMC Luftwaffe uniform, so although I like how they came out it's not what I intended.

This weeks efforts will be concentrating on getting the two under-strength units I showed a week ago up to their full 24-figure strength.


  1. A nice looking mistake anyway, I was quite taken with the colour before I read your text👍

  2. I like the color of the greatcoat too! Beautiful work.

  3. Great legere, Scrivs. Really can't go wrong with French greatcoat colors.

    1. Cheers Dean, I think that there is quite a bit of variance allowed.
