40mm French Hussars in the Peninsular
« on: January 14, 2021, 05:14:15 PM »
I first saw these Sash and Saber figures in Andy from Old Gloryís display cabinet about 8 years ago - anyway I managed to buy them from their current owner Lee Gramson - I then rebased them and replaced all of the swords with steel ones and here we go - see what you think

2nd Hussars , splendid !  The chocolate and light blue combo works very well . Iím trying to remember if this was Brigadier Gerardís old regiment.

Have you looked at Sash and sabre dragoons, they are not too bad.

magnificent.  Love the animation - actually reminds me of old school / Gilder stuff in that way.

Hi Paul
Yes Iíve looked at them - Iím contemplating a conversion job on the Polish lancers using the men mounted on Perry Hussar horses turning them in to Vistula - because I hate Sash and Saber horses ! If tether donít fit Iíll use Sash and Saber Hussar horses - have you added anything recently ?

That's what I have done, planning on a unit of 10 Vistula Legion lancers.  Still not sure whether I should use Charge rules or Playable Napoleonic rules for some games (when I eventually get there!)

I had some spare pelisses so will be adding these to Perry Hussars, however while I like the uniform of the 2nd Hussars, will most likely have them as the 4th, add some dragoons and cuirassiers and I will have the cavalry for Suchet's campaign in eastern Spain.

What do you mean replace the swords with steel ones? Where did you get separate metal swords?

Amazing work by the way.

I flatten large safety pins and then cut them off to size
