My French force is small. Over the years I've tried to replace my 20mm corps with 28mm. But I haven't been playing Napoleonics due to a bit of a falling out with the group I use to play with. Or, more accurately, a falling out between me and the rules played. So the rebuild of my French has been sporadic. A few years back I painted a Wurtemberg brigade and, if a fit of despair, ended up selling it because I couldn't see me ever getting to use it. I've resented that decision ever since.
I've even commissioned a friend to paint up a regiment of leger. The first time I've ever asked someone else to paint figures for me!
Anyway, GdA looks like it's going to get me back into it and I decided to get these little fellows done.
Some generals and a skirmish line. Not much but these figures have been sitting half finished, looking at me with their little painted faces saying: "Paint us, Ian. Paint us and put us on the table and we'll win battles for you. Just paint us and give us a chance."
Finally their day has arrived!
Notice how I forgot to paint their cockades? Fixed now.
Ready to get into the enemy's faces and cause havoc.
