I've finished painting up some of Eureka's 28mm Wars of the French Revolution figures. As always they are a joy to paint and I think they turned out ok. Flags are by the dude himself The Flag Dude. My 'idea' is that I'm basing these up to use with the Napoleonic rule set'Republic to Empire' by Barry Hilton. Here is a link to my blog –

After this I'll be painting up some 28mm & 1/72nd SYW figures for a friend. Then it's on to my 1806 project and some Prussian infantry.

They look great.

Works for me – they look great, you should be proud. 1806 Prussians are a cool looking army as well.

Beautiful, nicely done, and what a great period to have chosen! I noticed the Austrian Chevauxlegers horses….did the Austrians try regiment the colour of their horses, like the French later on did with grey's for Trumpters etc? I do know the Austrian Cavalry was feared by the French.

Amazing work

As to horse colour, I know that the Austrians did try to have horses of the same colour in each squadron

Brilliant many thanks Frederick for the answer – I thought I read that some where, may be it was Duffy, but I wasn't sure so had to ask, I felt really stupid at one point about asking the question.

Many nations tried to keep squadrons in the same horse colors but that of course would go away once they were in the field and needed replacements. But as a painted up unit it always looks great to have the same colors.

The French were concerned about the Austrian cavalry but that would depend on the theater of action. During the late 1790s and early 1800s the Austrian cavalry in Italy was inferior to the French. So you have to look at what area of Europe you want to game as well as the year.

Very nice paint job on those figures. I love the Eureka line.
