Horse Grenadier Horses

Horse Grenadiers need horses! And here they are, black horses all. The now fully functioning Daler Rowney varnish is on (no more glossy nightmares as with the Life Guards) and they are just waiting for their riders to be glued on prior to basing.

As for basing them, I have been considering basing them in snow to replicate the conditions that the regiment found themselves in during their famous action at the snowy battle of Eylau in 1807 (see painting below).

I’ll make my decision and post the finished results hopefully some time later this week!
