It isn't Napoleonics, but at least it is horse and musket!
A couple of months ago I repossessed my old Spanish Succession armies and decided to finish them off so that I had 10 battalions, 6 cavalry, 4 guns and 3 militia/irregular units in each. Well, a couple of weeks ago I finally painted the last of 41 hand-painted flags and it was all complete.
|The armies arrayed|
|The Franco-Spanish commander and the French line brigade.|
|The Dutch Brigade with the main Allied commander|
|Looking from behind the Allied left - the British infantry and cavalry.|
|Another view from behind the Dutch Brigade facing the hill in the centre of the table.|
|The Allied right - Catalonian, Austrian and Miquelets|
|Close up of the Miquelets|
|The French right facing the British|
|The French line regiments supported by the 'red Brigade' of foreign regiments - one Italian, one Walloon and one Irish|
|The Bourbon Spanish|
|The Spanish cavalry|
|Spanish militia - two line battalions and skirmishers|

These guys were really just posed for the picture - I think any attempt to fight this battle will be a bloody slog with dice and luck playing a good part in the outcome. Might be worth trying though...
The figures are almost all the Warlord Games (Wargames Factory) plastics, with a few metal Ebor command scattered in there.
The plan is that during the school holidays I'll look at doing a solo campaign with them.
