Fifty shades of gray.
|French 3rd hussars in splendid silver gray, red piping & plumes - super sexy.|
|Note the officer's red boots and silver piping. Note also the elite company trooper lurking in the background.|
|Rear shot of the bugler and standard bearer.|
|The regiment is 24 strong, 4 squadrons of six.troopers.|
|One of two regiments of 32 dragoons arriving soon.|
|I elected to depict the elite company in bearskins, mostly for the look of it to be honest - I love them.|
|Lovely rear shot of the command group showing some fine detail on these Perry plastics.|
|Similar rear shot of the next dragoon regiment this time with pink facings.|
|Front shot of the above, Pretty in Pink?|
|A whole regiment of dismounted Perry French dragoons. These aren't mine but are soon available for sale from Barry Hill on ebay so keep your eyes peeled.|
|These look lovely. Perry plastic sculpts again.|
|A brilliant mounted officer - to cool to dismount a take pot shots with a carbine!|
|Obligatory rear shot - facings this time in orange.|
|These are Hungarian or Czech insurrection troops for my Austrian army, I'll check out which regiment they are as I forget, possibly von Riess?|
|Lovely banner pole and sapper, these will make for something different amongst the acres of white in the Austrian army.|
|Rear of the above.|
|Perry plastic Wars of the Roses Men-at-arms. |
Old school heavy metal!
|I sent these to Barry and forgot to offer them as part payment for the Napoleonics, he duly painted them so I either use them or sell them, there's only 36 I suppose but a costly mistake!|
|ECW or TYW regiment of foote! This is a another unexpected return, I have already found them a home in exchange for further painted goodies - phew, costly mistake otherwise.|
|These are Warlord Miniatures and mighty fine they look - I just can't get distracted by another big project so they must go.|
In other news we set up the table on Thursday for our next big Napoleonic game - Bautzen 1813.
I like to think of it as a pounding in the ponds. This will be an "inspired by" game as opposed to strict refight. Call back for more.
Best wishes, Jeremy
