Baccus Napoleonics

I hate painting horses. In any scale. This is a realization I came too while trudging away with the mass of cavalry that came in the Baccus Polemos Napoleonic Box. I am ok with easy to paint cataphract calvary, but I hate painting horse flesh. Still the sight of those massed 6mm foramtions is awesome.

Here are pictures of the French clavary 4 bases of Draggons , 2 bases of Hussars. They represent actual units but right know I do not remember which.

And now their staunch opponents 6 bases of Prussian Infantry
I decided to base half of them in lines, and the other half in attach columns.

I feel the same way about painting horses. The sight of an unpainted cavalry regiment in any scale leaves me with a distinct sinking feeling. Still, you've done excellent work on the figures in the pics. Well done for staying the course!
