Next off the production line is the 1e Carabiniers a Cheval. With only two Carabinier regiments in the French army, at least I can say I have now painted half of them:
The figures are again Foundry, and were nice clean castings again with next to no cleanup required:
The flags are again from GMB. The light blue I have used looks rather more vivid in these pictures than is apparent in normal light:
At around the halfway point I was a little disappointed with the way they were looking, but once I applied the different shades of white it really pulled all the colours together and I was pleased with the final result. Much more pleased than I thought I was going to be:
That's twenty French cavalry regiments now completed, with just four regiments of lancers left to go:
I also completed three more figures to add on to the 8th Cuirassier regiment:
My original purchase included three casualty figures. Although they added a bit of variety to the unit they were not overly practical from a gaming perspective, so I completed these to use alongside the other charging figures in that unit:
Next will be the first of the line lancer regiments which I am hoping to complete over Easter.
