Grenadier à cheval de la garde

Hi everyone! Don't know what's happening to me, I'm more in Napoleonics than in Ancients these days :D

I've started to paint several minis for the French Imperial Guard, and this time I can show you my first Grenadier à cheval. It's a Hät mini, one of their first references, and still very good in my opinion.
His uniform is the model worn in the early years of the empire.


It is a test shot - I wish I have patience to paint a dozen more after this one - and I would like you to tell me what you think of it, and if you find any mistake I should correct. I chose to paint his horse black, which is correct according to the regulation, but a dark brown horse would be correct too.
Any comment welcome :)

  5. Lovely painting. I wouldn´t have rated them from looking at the unpainted sculpts but you´ve brought out the best in it. With your painting it Looks more like a zvezda sculpt than a hat one. One Thing..Has he got stirrups or are my eyes bad?
