The Emperor's pretty daughters

Like most of my French Napoleonic figures, these were painted in fictional South American colors until I've got the Napoleonic bug again - the cannon were stripped and repainted green, the figures were just painted over, the carriage horses drybrushed with a bright yellow brown.

A nice sight indeed, all the figures working together. A pair of riders from this set, because their uniforms matched, were mounted on light horses and converted to Guard CAC, and I can't find the two limber drivers, so this is all that remains. 

I think I'll buy the Zvezda set of three cannon, and then the figures from that one could man all five, and these Italeri figures would be used for Guard artillery.
