Painting time. French Hussars (IV)

I have to admit it is not easy to paint miniatures when the outside temperature is 22º C, the sun is shining and summer is about to end! However, I have managed to scrape some spare time to continue the painting of the French Hussars in 'shako-ruleau'. The below pictures show the current state of the production line, after applying lighting shadings on the base colors.

From top to down: 9th, 8th, 6th and 5th Hussars Regiments
From left to right: 9th, 8th, 6th and 5th Hussars Regiments
The horses. Officer horses carry sadle cloths
Trumpet horses carry black sheep skin sadles
Meanwhile, I am starting the planning of the next Lasalle project, that will be centered on the previous days to the battle of Leipzig in the southern flank, when Murat faced the approach of the full Allied Army of Bohemia, while his master was trying to chase Bluecher and Bernadotte at Duben.

Watch this space!

  1. They look very nice Rafa - I like your production line painting technique!

  2. They are coming along really nicely Rafa. The 5th (and 7th) as Lasalle's infernal brigade are real favourites of mine.

  3. Very nice and great way of organising the painting. I would have gone back to this scale too if others played it locally, it's what I started with many years ago. Great site by the way, I look forward to trying out some of the scenarios you've done up here!! Thanks.

  4. Great looking cavalry, I do like this blue color Rafa..."Chargez"!
