Legere and Artillery

My Napoleonic project continues with another battalion of French infantry, this time painted as Light Infantry, or Legere. The models are once again Italeri and Hat, as by the later campaigns the uniforms of the Light and Line infantry differed mostly in colour only.

I've also finished a battery of French Artillery (with what I'd guess are 6pdrs). The figures are HaT's French Horse Artillery set, but I'll probably use them as either horse or foot artillery. I would have loved one of Zvezda's French Artillery sets, but them seem to have become rather rare now, as Zvezda prefers to sell their newer "mini sets" that simply aren't very cost effective.

That's all for the time being. Next planned is a regiment of British Light Dragoons, though I've yet to decide which. I'll have to see what colour scheme most catches my eye. I'm also still unsold on a rules system, though I am leaning towards Over the Hills. If anyone reading this has any suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them.



  1. Nice poses and wonderful painting!

    1. Thanks Phil. I think they came out pretty well, though the lighting for the photos is a bit underwhelming. Still, glad you like em!
