From KentG: 28mm Napoleonic French Cuirassiers (241 points)


Alright!  Kent's rolling out with the big guns now - well, the heavy cavalry in this case. Here we have two units of French cuirassiers ready to spread Liberte, Egalite and Fraternite - by the hoof or sword, take your pick.

From Kent:
Time put in another entry, this time it's 24 French cuirassiers. 



The back row are 12 Perry miniatures. These are for my collection and the front row are Front Rank and these are for a friend of mine. 25hrs of painting in these lot, they are all painted and based for 'Black Powder'.

25 hours of painting for this?! Jeez Louise, you are the 'Man With The Plan' when it comes to painting large units, Kent. This is seriously impressive - well done.

These 24 cavalrymen will give Kent 241 points with a bit added for the fine regimental standard. In two entries this put him neatly into second place - brilliant work Kent!
