Napoleonic French Hussars 28mm
These are the first batch of plastics I ordered from Triple Helix games. As loathe as I was to buy plastics again, financially it made sense (£16 per squadron for Perrys or £35 for metal?). I'll admit that part way through I was slightly exasperated when I'd glued my fingers together for the third time. The end result was worth it I think. The above photo is probably something akin to how they'd look on the battlefield running 'Pell Mell' as they say! The uniform is that of the 12th Hussars around 1814 according to the leaflet in the box. I'm currently reading Rory Muir's "Tactics and Experience of Battle in the Age of Napoleon" which gives a brilliant view from the perspective of the ordinary infantry or cavalryman.
