ABs French light Cavalry casualties

Hi guys, these are ABs French light cavalry casualty figures, they're up to ABs usual high standards, excellent poses and great proportions, there are 8 riders and 8 horses, all the figures are Chesseurs, I painted these for my mate Scott, he is using them as disruption markers hence the various units, excellent figures 9/10

Eureka 15mm RHA rocket troops

Hi guys, this is a unit of RHA rocket troops that I have finished for Scott of this is actually a mixture of AB and Eureka figures, however as these are the first Eureka figures I have painted I will talk more about these, the ABs are the usual excellent quality 9/10, the Eureka mix well with ABs size wise, the sculpting isn't quite as good as the ABs but still very good, were the Eureka figures may fall behind ABs is in accuracy, I am no expert on RHA uniforms and equipment, so I may be wrong here but from the research I did for painting these figure I have only found figures uniformed and equipped like ABs, one white sword belt either around the waist or across the body, Eureka's actually have 3 belts, none of which carry a sword, 1 has a cart case (not sure why) the other across the body has no purpose and the one around the waist holds a pistol in a holster, the pistol holster looks about the size of a modern equivalent, to be accurate I would imagine it should be longer, I have found no evidence that these figures should carry a pistol, the missing swords are found hanging on the horses that have been provided, the horses aren't to bad, but are very big compared to ABs. So Eureka loses a point for accuracy 7/10.
4 on the left are ABs, 4 on the right Eureka's




All Eureka's except the figure on the right.

2 Eurekas and an AB.

AB and 2 Eurekas.

Victrix 28mm Grenadiers and Voltigeurs finished

Hi guys, here are the finished Victrix 28mm Grenadiers and Voltigeurs, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, I have based the Voltigeurs separately so the can be used as skirmishers and in Sharps practice, I will be going back and doing the same with Sharpe and his men as well, now onto doing some 15 mm Eureka RHA for a mate, the rest of this battalion will be done after the RHA, all comments welcome.

WIP Victrix 28mm Grenadiers

Hi guys, these are the Grenadiers to go along with the Voltiguers, they are about 90% finished, the bandaged hand, torn pant, and patches are sculpted by myself, love Grenadiers, and these Victrix figures are great, but the chin of one of the heads (fig 3 and 4) is to sharp, I will be re working this chin in future. All comments welcome.

WIP Victrix 28mm Voltigeur

Hi guys, I have read many complaints on various boards about the range of 28mm plastic figures being released by companies like Perry and victrix, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, however I have nothing but praise for these companies, I really love these plastic figures, they make converting a breeze and they are quite cheap, anyway here are 4 voltigeurs for my first French battalion, they're about 80% finished.
