10mm Napoleonic Russian line cavalry and infantry

I am painting these for Gerry of "The situation room". The snaps were taken with my phone. Sorry the second is a bit out of focus. Gerry does gaming on a grand scale using his "In the Grandest manner."

Gerry's blog is here. If you are a maniac for Napoleonics, and can get to the UK, send Gerry a message via his blog to see if you can get an invite to play at his place in Scarborough.

28mm Perry Napoleonic Imperial Guard Commanders

When I was in the UK I picked up a pack of these Imperial Guard Commanders at the Newark "Partizan" show.

28mm Napoleonic Westphalians

These are some Perry miniatures painted up as Westphalians. I love the variety of heads which the Perry brother put into this set.

28mm Black Brunswickers

With the anniversary of Waterloo approaching I can appreciate Napoleon's cry, in the film "Waterloo", of "I need zoze men!". We have had two hundred years to prepare for this day. I still have units to finish. I have yet to do the horses for my Brunswick cavalry, which consists of 32 Hussars and 8 Lancers, are without horses.

All of these figures are form Elite miniatures.

The horse artillery. 

Lieb Garde and Avant Garde skirmishers

There are seven battalions, including the Lieb Garde, and two skirmisher screens.

It is hard to see the highlights on the black in photos. They are there! I think that the key thing about painting black is that it should still look black after a highlight, not grey.

28mm Napoleonic Polish and Bavarian Generals

This is the sort of thing I have sitting around for ages while I get around to basing. I couldn't decide who to put on particular bases, or how many figures to use per base. I think I still have some Polish Generals floating around.

28mm French Napoleonic Imperial Guard Band

This is the original Blues brothers band. The figures are from Bicorne miniatures. You seem them pop up occasionally at the Wargames Holiday Center and other places people with too many figures gather. For the Wargamer who has everything...
