Old Guard Chasseurs, 1815

Back in 2008 I painted these Old Guard Chasseurs. They were the first in a long serie of French Napoleonics units to come. They represent the 1st battalion of the 1st regiment of Chasseurs: hence the Eagle. Hence Cambronne to lead them.

They are 32-strong. 15mm frontage, 8 men to a base. Perry miniatures, GMB flag. Painted in 2008.

The usual beginner mistake (is it?) is to paint Guard units first - as they are not really supposed to be used much in games. Moreover they would be committed last in any game. Also one may wait for confirmed painting skills to do them.

Nevermind, I think they came up ok. My first attempt at painting eyes was acceptable.
