Napoleonic Cavalry!

Hoi,

Lately I've been up to my neck in horses. Erm...on second thought, that doesn't sound as good as I meant it to sound. What I mean is that I've been painting Napoleonic mounted units recently. Two of those I will showcase here.

Th first is the Württemberg Chasseurs a Cheval or Jäger zu Pferde. The figures are from HäT i.e. their 8175 set Württemberg Cavalry   I chose to paint them in the colours of the Köning regiment, uniformplates can be found here.


The pink turned out a bit darker but I am really pretty happy with them.



The second regiment are the later version of the French Carabinier regiment. These blue instead of white coats were on my wish-list for some time and so I finally came round to painting them. The miniatures are Italeri's set of course and painting instructions used were:


The blue coats could have used a last highlight but I tried this on one mini and didn't like the end result so decided not to do it.





Hope you like them as much as I do!

Cheers Sander
