New cavalry units

I have been busy with the holidays and work lately but I did find time to paint a couple new units of French cavalry - Royal Carabiniers.  I painted up only two of the 5 brigades to start with as I didn't want to overload the French with elite cavalry.  I also had the Nugent/Fitzjames unit painted up by Javikos Studios in Spain who can be commissioned through Ioannis.  All flags are done by The Flag Dude.

If anyone wants me to take the pictures in a different way please let me know and I'll try to accomodate you.  And these 3 new units didn't help the French at the convention game one bit.  The French cav got crushed.

Siege of Augusta convention

Here are a few pics of this very nice convention held just about a week ago.

The people who ran the con were really open to us putting on a big game.  We put all of our figures on the table which was around 2,500 28mm figures.
