Evening all,

For those of you that like lots of photos of well painted Napoleonic French Cavalry, I've just blogged about my latest purchase from La Flecha Negra painting service, based in Madrid.

La Flecha Negra have just painted my French Light Cavalry for Medina De Rioseco


As always, comments and feedback welcome

Well nice and all, but I couldn't part with that kind of money!

I'd say, ahemn, not a fan of the 'lightened' colours these days.

Guard Chasseurs are esp. nice. Great to have help on the lead pile. Nice collection!

Must say it strikes me as a very good deal. This included the cost of the figures themselves, painting to a high standard, basing and postage, at less than 5 Euros per head.

I seem to count 36 figures at 170 Euros total. Big outlay of course, but per figure, sounds good to me. Put it this way, I paint all my own figures, but I was doing it commercially, my time is now a very precious commodity.

18mm figures probably do need lightened colours and I suspect illumination for these photos only exaggerated that.
