Bit of a monster post this one. A detailed look at my French Guard Cavalry Corps project for the 1813 era, which with recent addition of the Gardes d'Honneur is now complete. I had uploaded some pictures of some of these units 4 years ago(!), but thought I'd take some more consistent ones here, plus there are some changes. Note I haven't included the Horse Artillery or Generals in these pictures, but they are completed too, except for Murat.
Grenadiers a Cheval
Chasseurs a Cheval
Light Cavalry, "Guides" of the Guard and escort to Napoleon and other Generals. I've added a bit more detailing to piping and lacework of these, while I was painting the Gardes d'Honneur, and also redid the green with Vallejo Deep Green rather than Uniform Green to give it a richer hue.
Gardes d' Honneur
A newly painted unit. Four regiments of Gardes d'Honneur were raised in 1813 as an emergency measure due to the lack of cavalry after the Russian disaster. They were raised from the nobility who could supply their own equipment and horses. The uniform differed from normal Hussar dress only in that the flounders of the cords on the shako were on the left rather than right side. I've painted these as the second regiment, but the only difference in uniform between the four regiments was the plume tip, which was red (1st regiment), blue (second regiment), yellow (third regiment), and white (4th regiment).
Phew and done, thanks for looking, all that now remains for the 1813 Guard is two more units of Young Guard to bring those up to 8 units, plus some specific Guard Generals.
