|Preparing the single based officers and NCOs for Sharpe's Practice
|Officer and NCO in forage cap lead the dismounted French dragoons
Here then are the figures and units as per the SP lists. For the French I made up an 8 figure unit of dragoons under an NCO. They are the only cavalry unit that can dismount and fight on foot (historically the Austrian light cavalry especially dragoons also skirmished on foot but rarely did so as they trained to shoot from the saddle) so I adapted the Perry's plastic dismounted dragoons, creating a junior officer and a horse holder stand.
|Dragoon horse holder conversion. Thinking of putting a carbine in a bucket strap on one of the horses to represent the horse holder.
|Officer and NCO for the three 8 figure line units.
|Legere led by the Corsican Brotherhood (aka 'the Emperor's Cousins') NCO and a Leger officer.
|Tirailleurs Du Corse ('Les Cousines')
|Legere with Voltigeur (left) and Carabinier (right, in Kolpac)
|Chasseurs D'Elbe Tirailleurs with junior officer (left) and senior NCO in Pokalem (on the right)
|The battle-hardened Chasseurs led by their battle-damaged officer.
|Ligne (Line) officer with its Voltigeur (light) company & NCO
|Mounted senior officer (Captaine) in overall charge of 12 infantry , two cavalry & two guns
|French gun & crew. Unfortunately its an old Elite model so more like an 8 rather than 6 pdr.
|1st French skirmish army
|Warasdiner St. George (fearsome Serb frontiersmen!) Grenzer with NCO and Austrian LI (or Jaeger) officer.
|Jaegers led by an NCO - this can be a specialist sharpshooter unit all rifle armed.
|Austrian Dragoner (dragoons) led by a bald NCO type. They are armed with the Austrian cavalry carbine which, better than the standard French cavalry carbine, was not nearly as effective as the long barreled version used by the French dragoons.
|Austrian Line officers & NCO, with mounted 'Inhaber' (senior officer) They are old Foundry figures and a bit hobbit-like next to the Perry's 28mm plastics
|Austrian light gun & crew. Austrians still used battalion guns (particularly with Grenz and Hungarian regts) so had plenty of 3 pdr pop-guns available as well as 6 pdrs.
|Three units of the Hapsburgs finest - Hoch & Deutschmeister - with their NCOs.
|The Austrian 'Skirmish Army'
|Cossack 6 pdr.
|Russian Infantry units with officers, NCOs.
|Russian line with NCO, line officer and Cossack officer
|Jaeger unit with officer and NCO
|Russian Line artillery with 8 pdr
|Mounted Russian commander
|Russian skirmish army
Because I've had to adapt the basing to fit the single base model used by Sharpe's Practice, only officers and NCOs are individually based. All others are 2 figures on a standard 30 x 20mm base. To indicate casualties I've made up plenty of figure casualty markers for each army.
