French republic hussars

Posted by CPN on 08 Nov 2020, 19:26

Good evening everyone,
Along the horse artillery, I needed some cavalry for the period.
So I used Revell and Hat Prussian hussars which will do the trick from a distance.
I think the uniforms are closest to the 4th regiment.

Stay safe everyone.

Great work on them, CPN. I prefer the Revell figures better than Hät ones, they have more dynamic and stylized poses. :thumbup:

Really well done! I have used some years ago also the Revell hussars for conversions and my project Napoleon in Italy, but I have to confess that you made a better paint job.
They are really well sculpted minatures.

Hi everyone,
I agree Revell figures stand out but I didn't have enough of them to complete my standard size regiment and I like also campaign look with the trousers of the Hat hussars.
I also admit they are nicely uniformed for French revolution standards which was probably never the cases.
Thank you again for your kind support.

Very nice conversions.

There is a real look of the period here but as you say the uniformity might have suffered at the time.

I believe Napoleons Italian troops, initially at first were very threadbare.

Great work along with your artillery.

Best wishes,

Chris

Great conversions. And yes the Revell set is a fine one. I have some of them in my collection from the days when it was easy to obtain.
