Painting time has been a bit scarce lately due mainly to playing the campaign, which has been fun. However, I have just about managed to finish the 6th Chasseurs and all they need now is another coat of gloss varnish and then basing before they can take to the field, sadly this will be a bit too late to help Napoleon out of his current predicament.
I’m please with the way the one-piece-castings have turned out and it was worth the fiddle to reconstruct their plumes. I’m particularly proud of the trumpeter who has had a head swap (with a broken DK French Guard lancer) as well as the addition of the trumpet. I based this one on the picture on the front of the Osprey book on French Chasseurs.
Finally, I’m not the only one recruiting Chasseurs as Roy recently sent me the photo below of the latest recruits to his ever-growing forces. Nice addition Roy.
