French Horse Artillery

The bases look very Martian again, but they aren't really that colour. I've just got the limber to do and that's the French light cavalry finished for LaSalle.
The tuftage is from Tajaima1 with the lighter stuff down the sides made pre-flockbox.

The figures are from CGM in Spain. They are 1812 regulation and the guns are 6Pdrs (which apparently weren't used in the peninsula but I'm really not bothered about that sort of thing anymore SACRILEGE!)

Getting ready for a (hopefully) final trial of "To The Strongest" for the Thirty Years War

I've used the first trial tufts from the flock box (which I don't officially get until next week), to create a 150mm grid mat with the second ALDI purchase. The Pike and Shot units are on a frontage of 120mm so the 100mm grid for the small ancients games wasn't going to work. This can also be used at the club for 28mm ancient / medieval games (except I don't have any 28mm figs!!!)
