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:
The 1st Cavalry Brigade
General of the 1st Cavalry Brigade, looks a bit like Lasalle or maybe just coincidence! (Please forgive the errant static grass that I forgot to blow off before taking the picture.)
1st Cavary Brigade’s Horse Artillery on the march.
69th Infantrie de Ligne
The 3 battalions of the 69th with Colonel Buveur advance in “Ordre Mixte”
The 2nd and 3rd battalions of the 69th
Ist Division Foot Artillery in action
Elements of the 18th Corps
Just finished a few companies of the 60th. These will not be a wargames unit as such but used as markers near my Brigade commanders to remind me to give the brigade a small skirmish boost.
Just updated the Terrain and scenery page with my version of Hougoumont by Leven Miniatures.
Please take a look.
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.
The 45th (Nottinghamshire) and the 88th (Connaught Rangers).
The 74th (Scotish Regiment but not designated as Highland until after the Napoleonic wars, therefore in line dress) and the 1/5th (Northumberland).

Please click on any of the above images for a bigger picture.
I have been doing some more scenery painting concentrating on the Hill Town set by Total Battle Miniatures. Please have a look on my Terrain and Scenery page.
The 1st Division (with a light cav. brigade in support) deploy into the valley in battle formation to engage the enemy (when I have painted some 🙂 )
The commander of the 2nd infantry Brigade, General de Brigade Chemineau and his ADC.
Some views of the commander of the 1st infantry Division, General de Division, Maximilien Sebastien Foy and his staff (and a couple of untidy rankers getting in the way)
Hope you like them.
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.
