The ramblings of a wargamer, originally up a valley in a wet and windy place and now back in civilisation.
Please note all the photos on this blog of my collection of wargame miniatures are the property of Colin Ashton and may not be reproduced without the owner's permission.
The 5th Regiment of Hussars were part of General Andre Massena's army at the 2nd Battle of Zurich in September 1799. This one of my favourite hussar uniforms and I doubt I've done it justice now I've seen the photos. The figures are Perry plastics and they were actually quite easy to assemble but I found painting them difficult. I don't know why but I couldn't get used to them being so light compared to the 'heft' of metal castings. Anyway, they are done and will have to do, so now I need to do another six of these (including a trumpeter in the correct uniform) and then tackle a dozen more for the 7th Hussars.
