AB Napoleonic French Light Infantry

Hello all,
Here's some French Light Infantry well the first six anyway these are voltiguers in skirmish pose again nice sculpts . I painted them with a mix of white trousers and some with blue I also use put a couple of patches on the knees to break them up a bit . Also painted the rolled up greatcoats in grey and oatmeal, and one last detail were the gaiters painted black or white . It all adds to a unit that looks  like it's been in the field a while .
Well its back to the brushes thanks for taking a look .
Regards Gav .

AB 15mm/18mm Napoleonic Russian Currasier 1812

Hello all,
I have been working on three regiments for a client again not based 1, Little Russia (green facing) 2, Astrakhan (yellow facing) 3, Novogrod (pink facing) . The currasier before 1812 did not have currasier plates most of them had black enamel apart from some regiments who wore captured French ones . I didn't want to show them jet black so went for oily steel with black mixed and then some black washes .
The horse's were kept dark colours ( the Russians didn't normally care for coloures allocated to certain units, even the trumpeter didn't have to be on white or grey horses ) so I painted them dark and light bay and some dark chestnuts .
Well that's it for now back to painting French line in great coats .
  Regards Gav .

AB 15mm/18mm Napoleonic French Line Infantry

Hi all,
I have some more French in great coats for a different client with a few added skirmish poses as per the ones you have seen before you will see I like to mix up the greatcoat colours (different greys and some Browns and oatmeal ) .
I like to have different shako colours as well also a few patches on the clothes I think it helps to show a unit on campaign . As before the client will be baseing them so more pictures of  little soldiers on bottle tops .
  I hope you are progressing on your own projects, until next time..........
Regards Gav .

38th foot light company (ab napoleonics)

Well here's another company to my battalion of the 38th as I have said before I have been throwing a company in along with my commission work . Not the quickest way of getting a force together but a good trade off I still get to add to my little force there's still a company or two to go .
  Thanks for looking until next time .
Regards Gav .
