Although the blog has been quiet recently, I have been very busy! I agreed to paint another army for Glenn, this time for Commands and Colors Napoleonics. I am tackling the Russian army from 1812-4, and I have started with the cavalry.
The Russian cavalry was definitely colorful, and it performed very well in the later Napoleonic Wars. Glenn has purchased some beautiful figures, and I am definitely having fun with this commission.
Here are Glenn's six regiments of cuirassiers, all Perry Miniatures figures. I trust that readers will know Perry's high reputation. These are some of the most beautiful Napoleonic sculpts I have ever seen. Many of the riders are cast with their horses, and the sculptor has provided separate sword arms.

I should have some more photos up over the next few days.
