Here are the armies, starting with the first I collected and painted, the Napoleonic Wars Austrians of about 1809. This is an 'Advance Guard' Division with a light cavalry brigade of hussars and Uhlans as well as and infantry brigade of Grenzer (Warasdiner regt.) and Hungarians - note the 3 pdr with the Grenz - with Div commander, ADC and escort.

Next is a Line Brigade consisting of elite German Regt. IR 4 Hoch & Deutschmeister, with attached Jaeger battalion. To their left is my Reserve Div (in the making) with two battalions of grenadiers to make up one the composite grenadier brigades and the start (just two 'flugel') of my now complete 16 figure cuirassier unit. Reserve Positional battery of 12 pdrs is in the foreground. Most of the figures are 'Elites', with some Foundry (the cuirassier) and some Connoisseur(?) thrown in for good measure. Wasn't too picky when I started - as long as they all fitted in together.
