With my 6mm Ancients being the main focus in this scale I have not done much in the way of Napoleonic's, worse still I have not done any fine detail work and some of these need this.
But first I offer you some very interesting miniatures, these are MDF 6mm figures by Commission Miniatures and you get 36 figures for £2. This pack is the light cavalry in shako and to show the versatility I have painted two units up as Polish Hussars and two as French Chasseur's. The detail is light enough to paint over where required and good enough to tease more detail out if you wish and have the skill.
|Look a bit off straight on|
|All five regiments.|
I already have two regiments I can not use for Waterloo and meant to paint up one with white coats to represent the Guard cavalry of the Prussian army of 1815 but as I was painting them at 3am Thursday morning I forgot and ended up with an extra standard regiment. Since Napoleon had limited Prussia to four regiments plus the guard regiment I can only use the extra regiment in games before Prussia was forced to disband the other regiments. As an aside I can't use these in a true 1815 campaign either unless the second Prussian army is brought into play as none of the cuirassiers were with Blucher's army.
Good stuff Ian. Your 6mm Adler look great as always, the neatness you get on these teensy cavalry, and great groundwork really seals the look. Those MDF 'flats' are cute too. Theybdont make the grade for me as 'real' wargaming miniatures, but I do reckon they'd have a charm of their on en masse.
