18mm Napoleonic - French Cavalry

Probably the last post of 2015, here are the promised closer shots of the completed French cavalry, two regiments of Chasseurs a Cheval, two regiments of Cuirassiers, a heavy cavalry General de Brigade and a horse artillery battery.

All together.

18mm Napoleonics - Basing; Second Wave

Hot on the heels of the first batch of Napoleonics to ever be completely finished, a load of French cavalry and some more horse artillery about to enter the scenic phase.

Here after having static grass added.  I quite like them like this really, I think it's the uniformity.

Finished!  I'll do some closer photos later on.

18mm Napoleonic Basing Spree

Bowing to the requests for me to base a few things and acknowledging that I haven't based a single AB figure in the 5+ years I've been painting them, I went a bit crazy.  Lessons learned though; less is more. I knew this, but went a bit berserk and used everything in my collection of basing materials and had to tone a few back.  But actually some that I thought were too much have since grown on me.  The only major delay was discovering the number of horses that I couldn't be bothered to paint at the time.  Painting dozens of varied horses in retrospect is not all that fun!  So I've got a bit lazy with highlights, it should be fairly evident which.  Hope everyone is enjoying a relaxed Christmas and New Year.

Various command bases, a few skirmishers, and foot & horse artillery.
