It is a new year and I have already been able to paint up a couple of units for my Napoleonic collection. The first to share is an 18 figure regiment of French cuirassiers. These are Perry plastics. I love the Perry plastic cavalry sets. They are easy to assemble and a joy to paint. There is so much detail. On these figures I used four different shades of blue for the tunics. It makes a significant difference in the quality of the finished product.
