These are HaT from the 1808-1812 infantry set, and mighty nice they are too. My painting doesn't do them justice that's for sure.
With Napoleonics, I like to keep the more elite fellows in Reserve to commit once the breakthrough is established. That being said, after last battle, I may decide to use them in more of a role as spearhead. We will see!
|The Imperial Guard in battle line!|
|Target practice at the post-it notes|
|I love the way HaT models their weapons. The detail really stands out.|
|Cool under fire.|
A fine addition to any Shako French Army. Now I have 2 "elite" or "Guards" Battalions of French. That qualifies me for an elite brigade! (if I add my grenadiers a cheval, I'll have an elite Division!)
Next up I completed my Portuguese Artillery crewmen, French Artillery Crewmen, and about 9 terrorist insurgents for Seek Out, Close With, & Destroy. Pictures of those fellows to follow.
Next up on the work bench are another squad of US Rangers w the chocolate chip helmets which seemed to garner so much positive feedback from you all, as well as a squad of US Army in ACU uniforms, French Napoleonic Lights, another British Peninsula outfit, then it's on to some other project starts:
15mm AWI British Regulars, 55th Foot, Battle of Princeton.
15mm US Airborne Company
15mm German SS Company in fall camo
20mm US Delta Force & SEALS in proper kit
20mm Russian VDV Airborne
