A new addition to my Napoleonic French army. These are 20mm hussars from Newline Designs, painted to represent the 5th regiment. They originally started off life as the 1st regiment, but I decided to change them to the 5th, which is more or less the same uniform colour except the 5th have a white pelisse rather than blue.
Probably my favourite figure from the unit is the bugler. Again, not sure if the red dolman is correct or not, but I really like how the yellow froggings stand out on it.
|Hey, that's my horse!|
|Officers - always ending up on a horse they didn't start the battle with|
|Hussars like to look their best, even when running away|
I think I might have to paint something easier next. A unit of Pictons, maybe?
