French 3rd Regiment of Line Lancers

The last of the three line lance regiments, and an excuse to break out my Foundry pink triad again for the facings:











The figures are Perry this time, unlike the last two regiments which are Wargames Foundry. The flag is from GMB again:





















I also included some elite company figures to provide a bit of variety:





















I can't remember whether the Perry figures came with lances or not when I prepped these some time ago, but I ended up using the sturdy North Star wire spears which fit nicely and look the part with the GMB pennons attached:































I also purchased three of the Perry casualty figures which I thought I would paint up while I was in the mood, making this a fifteen figure unit in total although only twelve are likely to make the table at any one time:































Only the Polish lancers to go now, which I hope to have completed within the next week.

  1. Great looking cavalry group; I really like the tumbling casualty figures.

    1. Thanks Codsticker. They are something a little different which is what attracted me to them and I was originally going to mix them in with the others, but decided they looked better together as a group.

  2. Outstanding work, Lawrence! I am anxiously awaiting the cavalry parade when your last unit trots off the painting desk.

    1. Thanks Jonathan. I was debating whether to assemble them on parade or not, but given they are unlikely to take the field together am thinking I probably should.

  3. Splendid looking Lancers, the pink is a great facing colour and of course, we must have a cavalry parade!

    1. Cheers Iain. The Polish lancers are nearing completion and I'm keen to see what they will all look like together.

  4. Another fabulous addition to your excellent collection Lawrence, and wonderfully painted. Love the falling horse and rider. Real eye candy.

    1. Thanks Richard. I was a little undecided about whether to include the casualty figures, but am now glad I painted them.

  5. More great painting Lawrence, should look outstanding when all on a table.

    1. Thanks Tony. I'm hoping I'll be able to assemble them for a game in the latter part of this year, once I have completed some French artillery.

    1. Thanks Matt. There is certainly enough variety in the French cavalry to have kept my interest levels up as I plodded through.
