After completing the Grenadier Command I decided to finish the skirmishers for my Italian Brigade. The idea is that I can have a converged battalion of grenadiers and/or voltigeurs using command stands for each and the respective companies from each battalion. In fact, by juggling the figures provided by the Victrix box, I can get three battalions of line and one each of elites if I choose, or four line and one elite. This is made possible by using the kneeling figures in pairs as skirmish stands. As before, I tried to do small vignettes with each pair using bits and pieces from the spare bits box and a nice piece of scenery I came across - remains of a bit of ruined wall. I've put two light company skirmishers behind it, one of them waving his shako in the air to see if it attracts some attention while his partner loads up to shoot any bugger that tries to put a hole in his mates hat!
Might be a while though as I have commission work - some ACW Unionists - and my uni begins in earnest at the end of the month. And of course I'm waiting with eager anticipation for my Perry's dragoons!
