French Cuirassiers, WIP III

Here are the trumpeters for the two regiments.  I took some liberties with the 9th Cuirassiers trumpeter, combining two different schemes for different musicians from 1805-9.  The 2nd Cuirassiers trumpeter is painted straight.

French Cuirassiers, WIP II

I broke the bank on these figures, so I am taking my time and enjoying them.  Here are two squadron commanders of the 2nd and 9th Cuirassier regiments.  Everyone knows what sculpting geniuses the Perrys are, but they really outdid themselves with these.  I love the figures.

I have been using one of the best uniform references I have ever found.  It has great information about every little detail of every regiment!

French Cuirassiers, WIP

I finished painting all my Greek light troops (112 of them), and I needed a distraction while basing.  These Perry Miniatures French cuirassiers fit the bill.

I have about 30 of these figures to paint.  I finished two riders in about three hours last night.
