Don't buy your daughters a pony, buy them heroin instead, its cheaper and ultimately less addictive.

Thanks Smiley

But there has been something that's been bugging me about them though... I've had this nagging feeling since the beginning that maybe I should've based them using greener grass instead of the more dead kind...? My original reasoning was that the dead grass would make the colors stand out more due to contrast.

personnaly, it does not shock me, but can be a little more clear brush on the land would improve all parts and would be consistent with what you want to do

Hey guys, a little update!

Added the two Chasseurs-a-Cheval regiments, and another battalion each to my Legere and Line infantry to complete the Core Infantry Division of my Lasalle French army.

Started work on the Austrians now, and will most likely expand the French army with an Elite Infantry Brigade too Cheesy

More pictures on my blog!









The full army at the present - Core Infantry Division, and Light Cavalry Brigade

Excellent!

"... am I completely over-thinking this?"

Absolutely not! The detail is just as fun!

If you're still on a quest for more variety, you can paint your trumpeter's horses grey

and their sheepskins black.
