|Perry Miniatures Plastic Hussars|
Inspired by the cover picture on Osprey’s” Napoleon’s Hussars” (the 1978 original), it was probably only a matter of time before I painted up a unit of the 5th French hussars based around this magnificent trumpeter. With a box of Perry Miniatures plastic hussars and I was away.
Although I find the weight of metal figures more pleasing, the big advantage of plastic guys is that almost every figure can be different. With enough horse halves to make up 14 horses, I only ended up with 3 repeats. Not too bad I thought. Add to this the numerous head options, two leg options and you have the makings of a fantastic hussar unit. The flag is by GMB.
