54mm French Hussars for All the King's Men

I painted a unit of 54mm French Hussars over the Christmas break.  These guys were a soft plastic boxset by Italieri. The main objection I hear from other gamers is that "54mm miniatures are so much more expensive than 28mm." I paid $20.00 for 8 figures.  You do  the math!  Here's a brief gallery of the unit. I really enjoy this regimental uniform. It is striking on the miniature war gamer's battlefield.  All pictures were taken at the Rat Palace Redux in Red Oak. The windmill was a gift from a friend of mine, Sandy Botond.  He is from the Katy, Texas area.  Perhaps you know him.  Enjoy....they were a blast to paint.
