2nd Currassier 28mm Perry Miniatures

Hello all,
it has taken some time to get these finished it didn't help that when I came to base them I had already used up the bases so that was one delay then I forgot to order a colour for them but never the less I got there in the end .
Some of the usual facts and figures for you, they are painted as the 2nd currassier with scarlet as the regimental facing (as seen on the wolf tooth next to the  sheep skin) the trumpeter does not have a white horse crest when I looked at the osprey book they showed black when in the 1812 imperial livery .
    I used Vallejo paints, Windsor and Newton galeria matt varnish, Silfor tufts and 50/50 mdf from War bases .These will be going on ebay on Monday if you want to take a punt I do have some other bits and bobs to show you but as always nothing is flowing I have to send off for yet more bases and I am waiting on some shield transfers .
My big thanks to Stu at my club Wyvern Wargamers for giving me a chance to play Chain of Command (set in the Russian/Japanese war ) and to Dane for showing me you cant change history on a table top ! Yes I was the Russians no I didn't win that's three games under my belt Black Powder, Saga and Chain of Command no matter what period of history I cant get the little fellas on the table top to get me a win  . And to march in a forwards direction and not to the rear (have you ever seen thirty Russian conscripts all try and get through a doorway under the fire of just two riflemen it was like a call for last orders at the pub )
    Well I am off to spray my new dice with WD40 to make them roll faster (I mean look I chose red dice, in south east asia red is a lucky colour if I was a roman its the colour of war and still I kept rolling ones !) I hope you have a great weekend and get the soldier mountain down a little .
Regards Furphy .
