1/72 Napoleonic Austrian Light Cavalry

Chevaux Légere Regt. 4 ‘Vincent’. The penultimate unit for the project. A bit of painting license used as on some points the references were not too specific. HaT figures; not the prettiest in the catalogue and the command figures have to be cobbled together, but the only game in town.

  1. Excellent. They have come up really well. Nice size unit too.

  2. Thanks; not a satisfying group, a bit lacking in definition to be a pleasant paint. I've kind of standardised on eight for a cavalry regiment, more than that I find a struggle to paint - hate horses!

  3. Cheers, I've only got two versions; a dry one and a temperate one. Unplanned I may add, they just turn out that way :)

  4. Lovely looking unit. The Hat figures seem a little 'wooden' at first but paint well and look great when completed; as you have ably demonstrated!

  5. James, your comment is appreciated. The old HaT sets are certainly showing their age with regard to more recent taste in figure animation. Sadly I don't think HaT will ever update any of them or anyone else will bring out newer versions.
