Units for SALE!

I am selling three 24 figure WSS units.  They are all Germans in French service so they are in blue coats and all with yellow facings.  The figures are all Foundry and I am asking $5 per figure which I think is a very fair price so each unit will cost $120 + shipping costs (sorry but I cannot absord that).  I'm willing to ship anywhere but obviously you've got to be willing to pay my price + shipping.  You can contact me at: 18th_century_guy@comcast.net if you are interested.  Below are some pictures -

Thank you for looking and I may put more if my WSS collection up for sale in the next few months so keep checking back.

Latest French Revolutionary Figures - Austrian Cavalry

I decided to try my luck at painting some of the Eureka 'Wars of the French Revolution' figures.  I started with the Austrian Chevauxlegers they have and I find them to be a really beautiful figure.  Nicely detailed without going over the top, well proportioned, and the animation is done very well.  I've been painting Front Rank WSS figures for so long that it took a while to get into a rhythm with them but once I did I felt comfortable painting these very nice figures.  So let me stop talking and show you what I painted.

I like the thicker bases and putting the name on the back edge of the base.  I find it helps the figures last longer and the players can easily see which unit is which.

The next Eureka unit I'll be working on will be an Austrian Dragoon from this range.  As always comments and suggestions are welcome.
