Progress...


I had a very big push in December on my French Ligne, and by Christmas I managed to get four more battalions painted and based (although not flocked), bringing my total to six. My objective is to get eight battalions ready, and a battery of guns, and call it a division. Most of the minis were painted by others, some by David Davies and others are from eBay, which I heavily overpainted. I also based three battalions of young guard and half a regiment of hussars (not shown), so it was a productive pre-Festive period! Alas I had very little time for photography.

  1. Impressive stuff, Simon. The plumes really set them off.

  2. Very nice Simon - the Perry Plastic French are simply lovely figures and I have quite a few of them mixed in with metal command etc. I am sure you have mentioned on your blog however what rules are you intending to play? Was it General De Brigade?

    1. Hi Carlo, thanks! I am going to write my own set, using some of the same mechanisms as in To the Strongest!... later in the year. Best, Simon

  3. Splendid! I have just decided that I am never, ever going to get my Napoleonic stuff painted so it's all going on eBay!

    1. Naps are bloody tough to paint- probably a good call, Legatus!

  4. Thanks Aaron. This is an odd project for me. I now have almost 800 based French, with a couple hundred more on the way, but only 12 based Prussians, no artillery worth speaking of and no rules.

  5. Great start to the year Simon. Doing far better than me - got as far as dipping some block painted French Line. Like the skirmish bases. Can't wait to see finished units.

    1. Thanks! I have to put them by for a while and get back to ancients, but it has been a lot of fun having a bit of a change. I'll have them all finished by Waterloo! :-)
