I had managed to do one Guard horse battery and two Horse Grenadiers so my French Guard cavalry were not exactly up to strength. So a big thank you to Richard for being not only an excellent painter but much quicker at it than me. So far I have:
- one regiment of 40 Horse Grenadiers;
- one regiment of 40 Chasseurs a Cheval;
- half a regiment of 20 Polish lancers;
- two horse batteries.
Some close ups of the Horse Grenadiers:
The two I had painted before I came across Richard are very similar in style, and so match in well, but I had also tried to do the trim around the saddle cloth with a line of dark blue between the main trim colour. So he is handily identifiable and I have made him the colonel of the regiment.
