6mm Napoleonic Wargaming

This blog is basically a record of stuff that I am working on at the moment for my new 6mm Napoleonic wargames setup.

The army will be based on a semi fictitious French Corps in the period running up to 1812 in Spain before any major changes to the French uniform and flags, in fact at a push it could be used for the invasion of Russia (most units would not have received new uniforms or flags yet). That’s if I live long enough to paint any Russians!!  🙂

Some of my painted figures:

A change of colour.

I am sorry for not posting for some time I was distracted by a WW2 project which I can’t really put on this blog, but now its back to the Napoleonics

As I have finished  a French Division I thought I would have a change and paint some British.
Here are my first efforts.

45thand88th
The 45th (Nottinghamshire) and the 88th (Connaught Rangers).

74thand5th
The 74th (Scotish Regiment but not designated as Highland until after the Napoleonic wars, therefore in line dress) and the 1/5th (Northumberland).

6mm Figure Scale

I have just realised there might be people browsing this blog who have no idea how small these figures are, so here is a picture of my 2nd Brigade commander and his ADC alongside a UK 20 pence piece for comparison.
