Another addition to my growing collection of British Napoleonics, this time a few bases of horse artillery. It's likely that most games I play will only use one or two bases to represent a battery, but I do like the look of three guns together.
The blue on the uniforms has turned out a bit brighter than I'd planned, although it is slightly exaggerated in the photos. Apart from that I'm pretty happy with them. I wasn't sure if the figure with his hand reseting on his sword hilt is supposed to be an officer or not, but decided to just treat him as another regular crew member.
As far as the British and Allied army goes, the collection is getting there slowly. I seem to paint in bursts with sometimes long gaps in between. Hopefully my current run of painting enthusiasm will last for a bit longer.
Here's a group shot of everything that's been painted with 1815 scenarios in mind:
I still have plenty of unpainted metal in the pile - more heavy and light cavalry, another two Highlander battalions and one of line infantry, several Hanoverian battalions, Brunswick infantry and cavalry, and various command models. I'd also like to add some Dutch-Belgian units and Nassau troops eventually. For now though, this feels like a decent playable army for the small games I generally have time and space for.
I might take a break from the painting to focus on some terrain modelling next. I have an idea to create two 2' x 2' boards for small games, and will share some photos of that if it goes to plan.
