These form part of my ongoing project to recreate 1st Heavy Cavalry Division c.1812.
Artillery support to 1st Heavy Cavalry Division came in the way of 1st and 3rd companies of 5th Horse Artillery Regiment (5eme régiment d’artillerie à cheval). First up is 3rd company, resplendent in their Hussar-type uniform of French blue with the red trim of an elite unit. These models by Alan Perry are dressed in the 1812 uniform. Although many units did not receive it until a year or two later, they will not be out of place in my c.1812 force.
Splendid job – very natural looking with good sense of movement within the bases. I will soon be painting some 10mm artillery, so will use your bases as a painting guide …. though perhaps at that size, without the brass buttons 🙂
