A fourth unit of 28mm Napoleonics passes off from the painting desk in February. This time, we see two squadrons (eight troopers) of the French 10th Chasseurs a Cheval Regiment. Figures are Front Rank. Having minimal lace and cords, these practical chasseurs make for a relaxing project.
With four units completed in February thus far, I am beginning to see a little, noticeable progress on The Lead Pile with respect to 28mm Napoleonic stockpiles. Before my self-imposed challenge expires, I may finish one or possibly two more units.
Turning back to the painting desk, in work is an 18 figure British battalion of foot. The figures are, again, Front Rank but this time composed of Front Rank's latest models found in the Reinforcement packs. Gorgeous figures and now my favorite 28mm Napoleonics. With all of the lace and webbing, these will take a bit longer than anticipated to complete.
One revelation from this exercise is that additional figures will be needed to complete some of the partial units remaining. Included in this discovery, a few of the Front Rank horses are the wrong type for the accompanying rider. When buying second hand unpainted lead, one much ensure that the correct figures are included. That will need addressing too.
