I've used figures from HaT's 8220 1808-12 French Light Inf Carabiniers kit. While they're not technically correct for guard troops (they have the hussar-style short legged gaiters) I love the animation of this set. The shading is, as ever, Army Painter Dark.
As we've just started daylight savings here in the Southern Hemisphere, and daylight hours beginning to wane, the photos were taken indoors with poor lighting, so some were taken with the flash while some weren't. Excuse the quality while I figure out the best way to take indoor pics!
I'm hoping to give them a run with the other Italian Guard elements this Friday. Hopefully they'll do better than last time!
