Compagnie de Sapeurs-Mineurs

My Napoleonic project continues, very much in the background, but it does continue. These lovely Victrix conversions by Lionel Bechara represent the company of 113 sappers/miners at Waterloo. Later this summer, they will join the lovely Garde minis that Lionel and David Imrie painted for the Waterloo Replayed project. 

Some might say that a French Napoleonic army that is around 65% Garde is a little top-heavy, but I have a cunning long-term plan for their employment...

Grognards II

The Imrie/Bechara Grenadiers are progressing!

Below are the Chasseurs, based some years ago. I've decided to go with smaller battalions, which will make gaming more practical, and should enable me to get three or four divisions, a side, on a big table.
