I have been painting up all the new releases from Baccus of the redone Napoleonic French, though the last few releases I have been a bit slow getting them done but I am finally up to date with these three.
NFR13-Carabiniers, these I think will finish off the codes for French regular cavalry, like the Cuirassiers these are mounted on larger horses than any of the other regular horse (size gets smaller down the regiment types to such as the Hussars.
Again these are really nice figures and has plenty of detail to paint in or pass over without it shouting Missed a Bit at you. Unfortunately I don't have any of these on my painting list for Project Waterloo as these fall under Lee's remit and he has got them done already so these won't make the big show same as the rest in this post as Lee also did the Guard.
NFR36 French Guard Lancers were released at the same time and no I have not painted them up as the Red Lancers instead going with the first Squadron dressed in a much darker blue.
The lance is also in the charge position which I really like though I would have preferred more movement in the pennant but that's a quibble not an issue.
These painted up nice and easy and I look forward to getting them on the table sometime, though that will mean painting up a lot more of the Guard as I just have bits and bobs but this can be done once we have some direction as to what we want to do post Waterloo.
NFR19 Grenadiers a Cheval are another Guard Regiment with them wearing the nice bearskin which adds to their size a bit. Again nice looking figures and a good amount of detail.
Not a total fan of the cast flag but I can live with it. All three bases painted up over about three sessions so fairly quick for the level of detail attained. Mostly down to the quality of the castings and low level of clean up. Typical of Baccus you end up with a good looking unit with out any hassle, that's a great boon when you have a whole string of units to paint.
