Les Carabiniers Cassique - Republican General

I've not had much chance of getting much painting done over the last few weeks, now that I have a new graphic design job, but I did manage to finish off this general from the Les Carabiniers Cassigue range.

The pack consisted of two generals (one with a flag pole), a figure wearing a shako and another wearing a bearskin.

The two figures on this base are probably the most useful of the pack - I'm not sure what use I'll have of a general carrying a flag - excepting a Napoleon at Arcola of course.

I also wasn't sure as to what the figure wearing the shako should be, but it looked like a chasseur of some sort. I couldn't find any reference, so I just used guesswork and went with a chasseur uniformed Aide-de-camp. Hopefully it looks right, even if its not...

This is a new range of figures to me. Requires some further investigation.
