They were a little more of a pain to paint (although you'd never know from looking at them!) but overall I'm pleased with them. Next up will be a British line unit, a few more French line fusiliers, and finish off the Cavalry units for the Division - then I'll be almost done with the year's Nappy project!
These guys were fun to paint just a little tedious, as Napoleonic units tend to be but their look on the table with massed columns of their friends cannot be beat! Looking forward to my next Shako game. Huzzah!
|The formed Battalion|
|Nice shot! - Note the darker, Navy Blue colored cuffs, a nice touch.|
|I didn't clip the individual bases down, hence their irregular formation. That's fine as they are light troops anyways.|
|As I was painting on the green and red I couldn't help but think of them as "the Christmas Battalion" alas, it's the same when I paint Brits with green cuffs and facings.|
|Standard light kit|
|The white decorations on the Shako look neat.|
