I painted these up as a final regiment of Cuirassiers for Project Waterloo. They are Adler Miniatures and have the typical great movement you expect from this supplier. Not that these are the first Adler Cuirassiers I have painted over the last few years nor will they be the last as I continue to expand my painted collection. I have at least one more regiments worth of castings.
I really like how Adler supply the two different poses on a strip, it helps add to the movement of the unit. Having two command figures adds further to this effect.
Not that I plan to paint up any more French for the time being, the next Napoleonic troops I plan to paint are probably going to be Polish and then more Italian and Neapolitan infantry for both the Peninsular and even further in the future for the Russian campaign.
It looks like we will be keeping cavalry as 8-10 figure units on 60x30 for the foreseeable future which actually probably means we wont change. I am torn between the two, on the one hand they would look great 60x60 but on the other it's a lot of work to change them over. More a case of two late in the day than anything else.
I will leave you with a close up of the figures, you just have to love them don't you?
