Some Chasseurs a Cheval

Just finished basing these guys tonight. They could be either the 8th or 9th Chasseurs which had the pink facings. Based three to a 40x30 MDF base and grassed. This time I tried a three colour technique on the troopers - base colour, darker colour and highlights. It worked ok with the green but I'm not happy with the pink coats of the trumpeters, looks like they have been slashed by sabres. I may redo these when I get my enthusiasm back.

  2. Hi Ken,
    Deep pink can be a cruel mistress to highlight though they look fine in your pictures. A grand looking unit, you have really shot through your cavalry. I'm struggling for painting time at the moment.

  3. Thanks chaps - I've neglected the prusssians, I've got a couple of infantry units waiting to be undercoated after the last batch of Chasseurs
