Now Saxons are nothing that fits my immediate Napoleonic plans. As you know my Völkerschlacht game for next year only involves Prussians and French and I stated too late with Napoleonics to get enough minis done for the 200th anniversary of the Russian campaign. But when I saw the first previews of Eurekas Saxon Cuirassiers I, immediately fell in love with them. I really liked the poses of the charging troopers. So in spite the fact that I do not need them right now, I decided to order enough to do both the Garde du Corps and Zastrow Kürassiere for Borodino. The fact that Eureka will be at Salute and I have a friend who can pick them up for me (thus evading custom fees) was an added bonus :-D.
Now for those who have not seen them, here is the PDF that shows all the sculpts:

Oh dear taking a look at that pdf was dangerous, they look very nice indeed. Eureka has such nicely sculpted horses usually and it looks like these are following in that vein, they look like painting up very nicely

Oh it is not just the horses… I really love the way the troopers are leaning into the charge. It is a nice change from all those troopers charging in completely right poses!

Yes these look good, I will be buying 3 or 4, just for the fun of painting them, I’m about to start a Napoleonic uniform museum project, starting with some Bavarians.

Bavarians are nice, too. Which minis will you go for… Front Rank or Foundry?
