Michel Ney, Duc d'Elchingen, Prince de la Moskowa, and friends

Pre-tufted version of Marshal Ney, Col Heymes and Levavasseur, straight out of the box and painted to match the Waterloo panorama done around 1900. I think that the only difference is I've given Heynes a black sheepskin flounce instead of a leopard skin one.

Once the holidays are over, I'll restock on superglue and have a tufting frenzy ;-)

1812 and all that

Last week I finished off some brigade commanders for my adopted 1812 French. The troops are based on Ledru's 10th Division, supported Beurman's light cavalry brigade. All by Elite Minis and horses done in the old style - oil and a sponge Apologies for any uniform issues and grateful for any pointers as to where I may have gone wrong:

I may go back and add some tufts, but next up is their Corps Commander from the Twins…
