French Guard Chasseurs and British Guard Heavy Cavalry

Winter has crept into the the South Island and to celebrate the dark, cold evenings I picked up some Revell sets from a very nice gentleman in the North Island.  I am not so sure that these sets will be super useful to me for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I already have a squadron of Guard Chasseurs to protect the Emperor so I'm not too sure what the other three (hopefully ) squadrons will do. There is one bluish squadron of Guard Chasseurs which looks awesome so I'm going to paint up one to look like those dudes at least.  The second reason lies with the subject matter of the second set. These figures are the Life Guards.  Unfortunately, these chaps are wearing the uniforms from Waterloo.  This doesn’t give them any scope outside of that battle.  They do however look bitchinly awesome. So over the course of the next month I will be working on four squadrons -all the time checking the internet for the arrival of the Hat new releases of British cavalry. Hopefully these chaps will be my monster summer project!
