Ten days since my last post which is rather a long time for me, but I have been taking a break from the French infantry and painting something a little more intricate this week.
All the figures are from the Perry Miniatures French Napoleonic Hussars set.
I'd intended them to represent troops from the 7th Hussars at Waterloo, so, I'm really not sure why I assembled so many of them in Colpack, maybe I'll replace them at some time in the future but they will make a nice addition for now.
Here are a few close ups:
|The trumpeter and office on the command stand.|
|Another view of the dashing Captain|
|Elite company in Colpacks|
|And the back of the elites|
When the two components of the force are reunited I'll be able to field three large units of French Hussars, the 5th, 6th and this 7th Regiments.
Back to painting plain old infantry for a while though, I can't keep up with all the excitement of this horse flesh.
