Vive L'Empereur: Cavalry (3): Lancers and Chasseurs à Cheval

After varnishing and basing the Carabiniers, Grenadiers à Cheval, and Mameluke figures in my collection of Del Prado pre-painted 25/28mm-scale Napoleonic figures, I began work on the third and final batch of French Cavalry. This batch comprised Lancers and Chasseurs à Cheval.


There are two bases of Lancers and four bases of Chasseurs à Cheval, each base having two figures.

This now only leaves me the French Officers to varnish and base, but this task may well have to be put off for a few weeks as I have quite a few other things happening from now until the end of July.

  1. Very nice; they certainly made quite a varied range, didn't they?

  2. Gonsalvo,

    The figures that were included in Del Prado collection were from a variety of sources, and when seen painted and en masse they do look very impressive.

    All the best,

  3. Conrad Kinch,

    Yes ... and noI

    My original goal for this project will have been reached when the French Officers are varnished and based, but since then I have acquired a few more figures (and hopefully have a few more lined up) and realised that I can create one or two more units from the as-yet-unused figures from my original collection. As a result the project might get take even longer to complete than originally planned.

    All the best,

    Bob

    Thanks very much for your kind words. I particularly like the way that the Lancers have turned out.

    All the best,
