I thought I'd get a quick update in on what I've been up to. Currently I have a stand of New Orleans Militiaon the stand and drying (I told you more Americans would be up soon). These guys are the Baratarian company of the New Orleans militia, amde up of Jean Lafitte's river pirates, all decked out in red. I'll have pictures of them completed by tomorrow.
I also thought that I'd change things up a bit, so I bought some French lancers off of eBay. Unfortunately I didn't look carefully at their caps, so I have most of a battalion of French cheveau-leger lancers in the helmet and most of a battalion of Polish lancers. A few more figures apiece and they will both be full strength. I currently don't have many cavalry figures, and I thought these would be interesting to paint. I will paint them up as the lancer regiments used at Borodino.
Well, that's all for now. Pictures of the pirates up for tomorrow, then on to some lancers! (And maybe some Russians too...)
All the best,
