French Horse Artillery

These are 15mm Old Glory FAH1. French Artillerie a cheval. A little three gun battery. The men are excellent figures with a lot of detail. I enjoyed painting them.

Cigar box gaming mat

This is the Cigar Box gaming mat I bought for myself for Christmas. It's the winter scrub mat. The gaming surface came in today's mail. The mat came very fast considering I ordered it Christmas day.

15mm Old Glory Tchernigov Russians

The Tchernigov Reg. Was part of the First Army, 3rd Corp, 3rd Division at Borodino. These are 15mm Old Glory Miniatures. RCG7 only has 2 different figures. I like most of their figures but these are some the worst figures I've painted. I think the artist rushed them to fill out the line.

15mm Essex Isum Hussar

Another unit from the log jam on my desk. These are Essex 15mm Russian Isum Hussars. The Isum Regt. was awarded silver trumpets for capturing a standard, and rescuing Barclay de Tolley at Eylau. According to Philip Haythornthwaite. As I'm writing this I just noticed I made a mistake which I will fix. The Trumper doesn't have a red pompom.
Fixed!

Old Glory 15mm Kiev dragoon

Again these Russian 15mm Old Glory troops were on my desk for over a year waiting to be finished. I am pretty happy with the way they came out.
