More Westphalian Infantry

So I had a set of Italeri French Infantry, and decided to make one more Westphalian Infantry Regiment.  It's been a while since I have done a new set.  It will be a while, probably until September until I do another one. Family, is not very condusive to an avid hobbier, but you have to choose sometimes between them which is more important.  I will probably at least get a base coat down on some Westphalian Carabiniers, and Chasseurs, and then I will have my Westphalian Corps complete.  I'll have the Guard Fusiliers, Guard Grenadiers, 2 regiments of line infantry, Guard Carabiniers, Guard Chasseurs, Hussars, and Currasiers.

Velite Grenadiers (Italy)

I used the French Guard Chasseurs to try and capture these guys in campaign dress.

Old Guard

Also just finished the Vielle Grenadiers of the Guard.  This set is probably familiar to most, it is the Zvezda Old Guard set.  I will probably finish the Velite Italians Grenadiers next.

Italian Line

So I just finished these.  I used a standard bearer and drummer from Italeri French Line, but the rest are all HAT.  I used the French Guard Chasseurs fort the campaign dress grenadiers, Hat French Middle Guard for the voltigeurs, and the HAT 1812 line infantry fusiliers.

Westphalian Fusilier Garde

I used the French Middle Gaurd from Hat for this one.

French Hussars

I repainted these hussars to look like the French 4th Hussars, from the Italeri Hussars set.

French Foot Carabiniers

Well to all you professionals out there, I finally learned how to wash with acrylics.  I am also re-painting a lot of my old sets.  I will get the posts up on them.  You can sure tell what a rookie I am at this.  I took the French Grenadiers set from Italeri and made this conversion.  I already had the Zvezda Old Gaurd set, and they seem to match the historical size when comparing that set to my Hat industrie figures.  This seemed like a logical choice.  I took that Italeri issue set for Waterloo and re-painted a lot of those too. 
I only used a light wash for these Carabiniers, but the other sets I used a heavier wash.  I hope you enjoy.  I have combined some sets from Hat and Italeri to make Swiss, Irish and Italian units.  Those are forth coming, but I am going to re-paint my Old Gaurd set next, and wash those.  Thanks to all the more professional painters out there for publishing your content so novices like me can learn.
