About three battalions worth were already painted, so I thought I'd base them up and finish off the armies. I'm looking at using modified Neil Thomas rules, based on the ones that I used for playing French Revolution games.
|My brigade commander talking to one of his Highlander colonels.|
|A Line battalion. these figures were already painted when I received them.|
|British Guards. Again, these were mostly already painted, I had to finish another four figures to complete a battalion.|
|The Gordon Highlanders. These are all my own work. I tried to use the same black line technique as the figures that were already painted so that the whole project is consistent. I think it worked.|
|A close up of the command element.|
|The only Russian battalion that I've painted so far.|
|And a close up of the command to give an idea of my black lining technique.|
I have 8 battalions, 2 cavalry units and 2 guns for each side to put together, and that will be the whole project. The Allies have 5 British infantry units (including the Rifle Brigade) and 3 French ones to give me a bit of variety. They are supported by Hussars, Lancers, foot artillery and horse artillery. The Russians have 6 line , 1 jager, and a Siberian rifles unit, supported by hussars, Cossacks and 2 guns.
Today my 15mm Napoleonics turned up from Old Glory 15s. The figures are great and I can't wait to get into them. One can never have too many projects!
