From IanW: 6mm Napoleonic French Cuirassiers (36 points)


Rust never sleeps, the submissions roll in and I happily post. Here we have another entry from Ian but this time its French Heavy Cavalry for his 6mm Napoleonic collection. 

From Ian:
These are Baccus 6mm French Cuirassiers, I bought them in one of their army packs about 15 months ago so they were overdue for painting. I purposely left these till the rest of the army pack was finished as I like to do the less prestigious units first. Given I really need these for Friday next week I thought I had best make these the next to be painted. I also wanted to show the more disciplined side to my painting as 6mm demands a better hand and as I have all the materials I need for basing I could do a better job on these fellows. 

We have 4 regiments of Frances finest, the 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th Cuirassiers. Typical of Baccus we have some excellent sculps for detail. The usual negative is that they are riding ponies!! This is where Adler really outscore Baccus and hopefully before the end of the Challenge I will get more Adler to compare. Still they are fairly quick to paint up and arrive flash free.

Great work Ian! I'd be quite interested in seeing your rules for 6mm once they are ready for playtest.

These 36 cavalrymen will add a matching number of points to Ian's tally.
