I see what you mean about the horses. Still, great painting.

who makes those lancers ?

They look like Front Rank. Excellent paintwork! Just as a point on the horses, I've never seen white in the eye of a horse unless it was enraged.

Really nice job, well done!!!

Excellent painting. I hope Perry Miniature will make this unit, their horses can't be beat, action posed. They have Polish lancers!

danikine74 Inactive Member21 Oct 2012 11:01 a.m. PST

Yes they are front rank, i love the riders and humans, but i think horses are underscaled, or too small, i know they were light cavalry…

here some pictures of horses i think they fit better as heavy cavalry, but maybe light too


I Knew about the white in their eyes, i painted jusrt a bit, but certainly they show too much, i will re paint eyes!

Photography is made by a frind of mine, i never will take those great pictures from my kitchen and with my camera!!

danikine74 Inactive Member21 Oct 2012 11:02 a.m. PST

Roaring or chargin front rank horses are not bad, at least more dynamic, but still small for me

new grupal pictures link

Most excellent painting!

jabbadabbadan Inactive Member21 Oct 2012 5:09 p.m. PST

Wow, that's what you can do with larger figures. Most excellent!!

Ashenduke Inactive Member21 Oct 2012 9:27 p.m. PST

Great looking cavalry!

great painting but give the trumpeter a grey horse

danikine74 Inactive Member22 Oct 2012 2:20 a.m. PST

The grey horse. I prefered not to give it to the trumpeter, why? i wanted to difference it from a pure french unit. In the heat of the action and while participating in a long campaign, the grey horse might have died too…
i m very happy with the pictures and the photography work done!
Thanks for the comments

Very nice, I really like the 'N' on the saddlecloth. I'm currently doing them for a customer using Perrys Guard Lancers. Not quite the correct kit, but they fit in with the rest of order, all being Perry's in sculpting.
I often paint the horses eyes gloss black at the end of painting depending on the figure.

danikine74 Inactive Member01 Nov 2012 11:38 a.m. PST

i do prefer perrys horses!
i ussualy matt varnish the rider, satin the horse ( i do allways find the horse skin shining!) . Now glossy eyes… good idea

Next, maybe front rank riders and perry horses… expensive but…

Hello, I saw your figures on ebay and I want to buy
the control unit including bearer, and you can let me know the total cost including shipping costs for Italy? I think 8 ​​Shipping for miniature is excessive and perhaps for this reason I have made ​​offers on ebay.

danikine74 Inactive Member09 Nov 2012 7:14 a.m. PST

Hi Sanipa, end me an MP on ebay, i dont know how to send you an PM here…

Garde de Paris11 Nov 2012 11:33 a.m. PST

Wonderfully-done figures!

I wonder if the troopers lance may be a bit too long. Rousselot would have us believe that the Guard and French line lancers carried weapons about 9 feet long in total.

I hope this link is accepted, but I found a couple painted flat 30mm fiures of both Garde and cossaks with lances:



jabbadabbadan Inactive Member11 Nov 2012 9:14 p.m. PST

Brilliant!!! Just amazing.


danikine74 Inactive Member12 Nov 2012 8:35 a.m. PST

i must confess… i cut the lances without calculing nothing, just eyed mesured…
