Napoleonic 20mm 1813 game imminent.

Very loosely based on the battle of Dresden, we will be enjoying a large scale 20mm game on both the 4th and 5th June. Looks like there will be 6 or so players with plenty to command.

Finally finished the Art Miniaturen Austrian Dragoons and Cheveuxleger. Three regiments of each. The Dragoons have either red or dark green facings. The regiment with light blue facings, despite having a white coat, could double up as a Cheveuxleger regiment which is handy. The Cheveuxleger regiments (all with green coats) have green, red, or dark blue facings.

 Prussian limbers to come….painted/primed with the black matt Painters Touch spray can. The resultant finish is satin rather than matt (though the photo makes them appear more gloss) which is perfect for Prussian oil skin covered shakos, leather, reins, helmets and the odd black horse. Idle I know.

Hopefully Art Minituren will produce some French line mounted chasseurs in similar static poses as these Austrians. The most numerous French cavalry is at the moment missing from their website, but would be a welcome addition.


  1. Good to see you posting again Francis!
    Nice troops and nice plans!

  2. That's a lot of limbers on the go, lovely!!!
