Hi all

I have just uploaded some pics of my latest Nap unit in 28mm on my blog at

Hope you enjoy and carry on painting while we're all at home :)

Just one comment – a horse's eyes have almost no white at all. Also, I would expect this unit to be on matched mounts, like all bays of a similar coloring. Great painting, though.

Agree, very nice.
Though please lose the telephone pole!
Replace cast lead ones with steel wire of better proportions!

Widowson- agree about mounts- a certain person was very picky about that, at least before the 'big freeze' event.

Just a note that the 'scarlet' looks a tad pinkish, tho that may just be the photogs aura. Leave crimson to the trompettes!

I'm also re-repainting my men of worth, after many years in blankness,

You will see white in a horse's eyes if he is about to crash into a formed square, mind you! otherwise black I would agree, maybe the brown iris.

These are terrific figures and remind me that I never, ever, even seen a figure from this range, Foundry. I was put off by the suggestion that they are noticeably small for current beefed up 28mm, but a unit painted up like this makes me wonder, plus they do make "properly turned" Empress Dragoons.

Thanks for posting these. That eagle staff is a bit thick, he is right…..not easily replaced though
