15mm French Dragoons

I continue to plug away on John's Napoleonic French collection. These three dragoon regiments are the 2nd, 13th, and 20th Dragoons. I chose these three to give a nice variety in uniform appointments.





2nd Dragoons







13th Dragoons







20th Dragoons





The hussars are up next. Then I get to move on to heavy cavalry!

1/72 Napoleonic Russian Infantry

I painted these a couple of months ago, but I had to wait on a Litko order to base them. These infantry are all from Zvezda. I trimmed the plumes to create jager, but left the figures alone for the grenadiers.


 The Zvezda figures are beautiful and paint up well. I will be using these figures for "Chosen Men" from Osprey.

15mm French Casualty Markers

I was able to sneak in a little painting for myself this past week, these 28 infantry casualties. They are nothing too thrilling, but good markers certainly help the game feel nicer.

Here is the next group of French cavalry for John's army, three regiments of light lancers.

15mm Chassuers a Cheval

I have started a new 15mm Napoleonics commission, this time for John in Australia. I am just painting French and British armies for him, but each will be about the same size as the forces I painted for Glenn.

First off the painting bench are three regiments of Chasseurs a Cheval. AB figures were a joy to paint, of course!

1st Chasseurs a Cheval











7th Chasseurs a Cheval









12th Chasseurs a Cheval





All three regiments together!

 


I painted all the light cavalry horses at once, so lancers, hussars, and dragoons should show up on the blog pretty soon.

1/72 Napoleonic Russian Cuirassiers

When I was painting the 1/72 Seven Years War armies, I enjoyed the Zvezda artillery set so much that I decided to try my hand at some more of their figures. These 1812 Russian cuirassiers fit the bill!







I think they look great, although without a polyester coating, I'm not sure how resilient they will be on the tabletop.
