The painting list is a very long one and I've actually leapfrogged between one period and another - all over the place - as my fancy takes me. It tends to be dictated by available time and things I am actually enthused about, rather than others I ought to do. In this regard as lately I've been getting into Napoleonics again after a long absence, I have started with re-organising my armies on a Black Powder basis which means much bigger units. I've utilizing some of the non-standard figures that I've obtained recently or had hanging around for ages looking for a home and making up the dozens of casualty markers you need for a good old bloody BP stoush! I've been helped here by using some of the new Perry's casualty figures from their rapidly expanding Nap figure lines. I've also combined them with some old Foundry figures I've acquired. Breaking with convention, I've used them to construct a few stands of figures as well as casualty markers. Not unhappy with the results!
|French infantry advance into a hail of lead!|
|The nearest two are Perry's, the two between them and the command stand are old Foundry. I love the Perry officer-being-hit figure.|
|Unlucky Pierre and mate leaving the battlefield - makes a great marker!|
