My latest unit is a 6LB Prussian Field artillery battery. These are recast Hinton Hunt figures and are manning SHQ artillery pieces.

Firstly from the East. Dave V has sent me 6 French one piece line lancers (FN118). One has a broken lance so I am going to convert him to a trumpeter. These figures will bring my 5th Lancers up to full strength.
Secondly from the West I received 24 French Guard Marines (FN 94) from David C. The officer is a recast Marine Officer (FN 90) l had in my spares box. I will use a line drummer and standard bearer to complete the command.
Meanwhile on the painting table I am close to finishing 8 Prussian gunners and a couple of SHQ artillery pieces. These should be completed this weekend.

This morning I finished the 5th Line Lancers I started earlier this month.
The figures are a mix of Hinton Hunt and DK figures

I recently received a few DK French Line Lancers from RG and now have enough figures for a 6 figure squadron. The unit will consist of 4 original Hinton Hunt figures (FN 118) and 2 Der Kreigspieler figures (DK 38).

Well it taken way longer to get these figures completed but they are finally done.

I have had a break from painting classic Napoleonics over the last 3 months. This week however I have been making progress on a 6 figure squadron of Polish Guard Lancers using FN44 figures.
They are as per usual taking longer than I expect but his morning I make good progress on them and managed to complete the white on the first figure. It took over 30 minutes just doing this.
The 2nd Squadron will be painted as the Red Guard Lancers and will look rather fetching on the wargame table.
