As with the Hussars, here the trumpeter also had his original sword hand removed and replaced with a proper trumpet.

Swedish Cavalry - Von Mörner Hussars

I'm starting a Swedish army on this second half of the year, and here is the first unit I painted for them, the Von Mörner Hussars, with figures from the Hat Industries Swedish Cavalry set.

The trumpeter had his sword hand converted, so now he's holding his instrument of office proper. For this I used a spare hand from the Hat Wurttemberg Cavalry set.

French Cuirassiers - 4th Regiment, orange facings

Since I've been adding quite a few regiments of heavy cavalry for the austrian and russian armies, I thought it'd only be fair to give the french some well deserved reinforcements, too, so here they are, the 4th Cuirassiers, on their striking orange facings!

More 3D printed terrain - 1/72 houses

A while ago I participated on a kickstarter for 3D printed terrain, european houses, and a few weeks ago I received my reward. I'm pretty impressed with the quality and amount of stuff I got in my pledge.

The models are now available for purchase here, though for the specific scale of 1/72 you'd need to contact Aron directly. There are more stuff available from the KS than what I went for, and now I'm tempted to get all the other buildings he has in shop!

I started working on the models right away, and here is the lot, fully painted and ready for gaming. I used a 1/72 french chasseur in some pictures for scale reference.

Some wall pieces to go around the houses:

I believe I now have over 30 buildings in my collection of terrain for napoleonics - not enough, but it's getting there!
