Planning a Napoleonic Adventure....Part 16
An old school Osprey hardback compilation volume - I do not have a copy but I do remember it as being a very handy single volume reference.
I had a very productive night yesterday in that I was able to finish cleaning up the unit of French Cuirassiers, trimmed the bases of the Horse Grenadiers and then managed to rebase ALL of the French cavalry - some 64 models. I have eight units each of eight figures and consisting of the following:
Horse Grenadiers of the Guard
Dutch Lancers of the Guard
Polish Lancers of the Guard
Chasseurs a Cheval of the Guard - not sure about these as they look very much line Chasseur elite company types - more research is needed here methinks
Cuirassiers x 2 units
The plan for this evening will be to base the additional allied odd figures I now have and also to remove the now four day old soaked figures from their original bases. Once that is done I can move the based portion of the collection into the man cave - it will give me some elbow room - so that my lounge painting station can be readied for phase two - painting and varnishing.
I am certainly making good progress!
