French Divisional General

This chap was kindly given to me by Paul from Napoleonics in Miniature, he came with Marshal Murat who I'd painted up some time ago. He is a Fantassin (WarModelling) figure, he was improved by placing him on a spare AB mount. His sidekick is an AB colonel figure, which makes him a general of an infantry division!

3rd Prussian Hussars

Same story as last post - this is the 3rd regiment of hussars, AB figures based with no-more-nails and grass tufts. I painted the tufts a brighter green colour and then dry brushed with yellow to give a two-tone look. Agaim, this is another regiment that took part in the 1813 and 1814 conflicts.

I think I may open up a hairdressing salon for 15mm figures since this is the second time I have used the hair dryer to speed up varnishing and basing drying times!

8th Prussian Hussars

After a month of inactivity I have just this week completed the 8th Prussian hussars. These are AB figures and were relatively easy to paint with the exception of the barrel sashes. I think the Mont St Jean site may have gotten a couple of Prussian hussar regiments mixed up checking my Osprey and online sources they were supposed to be light blue -and since it stands out better this is the colour I went for. I made this unit a bit different by adding the ADC figure. Next up will be the 3rd Hussars, same blue dolman but with red collars and cuffs.
