Miscellaneous Napoleonic Cavalry

Don't think I've shown these photos before. Some of the figures perhaps..... in their cabinets definitely not!

These look extremely good. Very rich colors and I like the various unit representatives. I've been working on Russia cavalry myself and love the models but they are challenging.

Really nice! The guys in red in the second row are particularly impressive.

Those really are lovely. Such fine, detailed painting, beautifully rendered. And of course, extra special because they are Napoleonic cavalry! ;-)

Thanks gents for taking the time to write! It’s incredible how a few words of encouragement from our peers can help motivate us to post our pictures on websites. Don’t know how others feel but just a ‘like’ isn’t the same incentive. Am curious to hear from the rest of you members on the subject. Maybe I should ask this question as a separate topic. If so, and one of the moderators feels it’s appropriate then please feel free to move it!

They are quite good, although it would be easier to study them without the mirror background. Maybe a bit glossier than I usually prefer, but the details and faces are a high level achievement.

What color combination did you employ to execute the rich chestnut brown color on the horse, second row, third from left? I have seen quite a few horses in real life who have coats of just about exactly that color.

Always a pleasure to see beautifully painted Napoleonic figures and these are certainly some of them. When I feel less inclined to paint myself, looking at others' beautiful work is always inspiring and an encouragement to pick up the brushes myself.
thanks for sharing.

That is a really impressive collection of Napoleonic cavalry!!

It would be good to have some closer-up shots of more of the individual units and personality figures, perhaps on a table-top/wargames table?

Let me see if I can find some earlier photos of the dragoons and carabiniers that I posted here long ago afterwhich I will take some better pictures of the others. It goes without saying that not only has my camera improved since these early photos but so have my own photographic skills - aided by some very constructive criticism mainly from other members of this forum.

1 or 2 more photos that i took this morning

Image

..........and here i've been working on the base of a cossack to try to blend it in better to the base.
The Dutch lancers base I've disguised with tufts whereas the cossacks base has had texture and paint added. Let's see what we make of these pictures..... and then i'll decide whether to work on all the bases.

Thanks Kekso for you generosity but your truly is not altogether convinced that the smoke is very realistic. I will study a little more to see how i can improve things next time........ (but i thought it was an interesting idea to have two cavalry figures shooting at each other).
