I’ll start with an apology because I am sorry to say I have no new Hinton Hunt offerings to post. This has mainly been caused by the disruption of the festive period but also by a slight slump in painting enthusiasm. With a house move looming on the horizon in February output will probably remain quite low and I don’t think I will be tackling any full units until after the move.
That said I have managed to finish this unit of 15mm Battle Honours French Imperial Guard Chasseurs. I say finish because they were an eBay purchase made before Christmas and I was the victim of a dodgy photo because they’ve needed far more work than I had anticipated. The biggest problem was trying to find a way to attach two new wire sabres and the top of the flag but I think I got there in the end. However at a quid each it wasn’t a bad deal I guess and I’m quite pleased with the way they turned out.
This unit is to be added to my Waterloo period 15mm armies for use with the Age of Eagles rule set. My initial aim is to amass enough troops for the Quatre Bras scenario included in the book and I’m not too far off this now.
I do have another HH personality figure in the pipeline that I hope to be able to post on soon so watch this space.
