French Hussars - Elite Miniatures

French 10th Hussars set for action soon.

A quick post to show a long term project which has been finally completed.  These are wonderful Elite Miniatures which are available from Nathan "Lonely Gamer" Vinson up in Townsville through Elite Miniatures Australia for anyone  in our part of the world.

These have been on the basing table for quite some time.  Nathan had finished the actual troopers themselves last year however I have been very slow in finishing the horses.   These will play their part both in the Peninsular as well as my 1805-1807 project.
Nice reverse colours on the lead trumpeter

Great to be able to represent the Elite squadrons as well.

A few more chaps are being finally based as well so a few more updates this week with a bit of luck.

    1. Thank you James - Nathan is a wonderful painter and I personally think no one paints Elite Miniatures as well as he does in Australia. I am a bloody good baser though!!!

  8. Ah see, that's what happens when you skim the words and concentrate on the pretty piccies! I read available from Nathan as him supplying figs and completely missed the next bit that he'd painted them. So congratulations to you on your purchase!! :)

  9. A nice meaty unit of them flashy hussar types. Mind you ... they'd be nothing without the basing! 8O)

    Your 1805-1807 project sounds interesting. The glory years as some would have it.

    Salute
