French line horse artillery (2)

Here are the two Perry French Napoleonic horse artillery packs which, together with the Foundry pack I painted last October gives me one complete battery.  According to Adkin, each French cavalry division at Waterloo had a horse artillery battery of four 6-pounders and two 5.5 inch howitzers.  I haven't really started on any cavalry from my French army as yet, with only one cuirassier regiment painted.  I suppose what puts me off rather is the length of time I know it will take - those cuirassiers took the best part of a month, I recall, and that was at a time when I had much more time than I do now.

There's not much more to say about these figures.  I have a few more Napoleonic things to post about but tomorrow I'll have some AWI.  If I can drag myself away from eating chocolate this afternoon I'll post a review of the new Perry plastic AWI British infantry. 

8 figures. Painted January 2013.
