Nice. Somewhere in the various boxes and what have you in my modelling room, I'm sure I have this RHA set lurking!

For some reason I decided to paint these Esci Napoleonic French Artillery (234) as Artillery Train of the Guard, which is quite incorrect :evil:
I shall be re-painting them as Guard Foot Artillery ;-)

I haven't got a clue what you are talking about with these Guards artillerymen, Ratch, but I'm sure you'll make the necessary adjustments to their uniforms without too much drama!

We all make mistakes!

Although like Shaun I wouldn't have had a clue without you saying.....!!!

I have a mixed bag of HäT 8003 British Rocket Troops, a full set previously painted, and a set of figures only (without rocket launchers or wagons)
Image

I have cut four bases to mount them on
Image

The pre-painted set needed very little touching up
Image

As they are all basically Royal Horse Artillery, I shall save some to utilise with other sets.
Image
The ones with rockets will supplement the first set

Good grief, Ratch! How do you keep up with all these little fellows?

Very impressive!

Thanks David :grin: at the moment I'm restoring and mounting lots of my previously painted figures. Some don't need much work at all, but since I've switched to acrylics the painting has speeded up (with the quicker drying of the paints). I've also been reading up and correcting most of the errors I made previously. I have a few more restorations to do before I start on my 'new' boxes :twisted:

It seems there's unstoppable legions of these little blokes, Ratch! excellent work and I regularly pick up bits of info from your work here - for instance, I now know that the British Army once fielded rocket troops 8-)

Thanks Shaun :grin: I decided that while painting the Rocket Troops I should paint the other RHA uniformed men in my possession :twisted:
Consequently I got out 3 sets of Esci, one of Airfix and some odd Drivers from Revell's 02577 Foot Artillery. I shall also utilise one of the teams of horses (and limber) to use with the Rocket Troops as well as a gun (they had 5x6 pdr guns and 1x5½" howitzer)
Image
So I currently have six (and a bit) sets of figures on the bench - this may take some time...

This is where I started this morning...

Concentrating on the 2nd picture's content, I got to here...
Image
What you see is a mixture of HäT, Esci, Airfix and Revell
Image
I had just sprinkled the scatter over the PVA and these will be tidied up tomorrow
Image
Wellington attached a 6pdr battery to the Rocket Troop
Image
Their wagons were drawn by teams of four horses with a limber
