25 mm Cuirassier Band - Dave Docherty

Here’s a very different subject from the usual gallery items: a Napoleonic Band.

Dave has painted the Mirliton 25 mm set to represent the band of the 1st Regiment of Cuirassiers:

It’s nice to see a touch of Old School, Napoleonic colour.  The impact of all those white horses is very striking.   I particularly like the dappling; something I never managed myself.

Here’s a close up of the drummer to show Dave’s skills with a brush.

Dave clearly enjoyed painting these as he’s ordered the Mameluke band set!  I hope to post those when he’s done in the meantime check out Dave’s blog.
