French Re-enforcements arrive
My French Napoleonic Division is almost there now I'm glad to say. After dipping into Ancient Celts for a while, I am back on course with only ten Voltigeurs to paint to finish the lot. After a period of dipping figures I am quite enjoying the detailed uniforms again, something I never thought I would ever say.
As I am basing my figures for Foundry's 'Napoleon' rule set, I am also enjoying creating bases of Skirmishers. These can be great fun to do and allow you to make mini dioramas of the Flank companies as they struggle forward in front of the main force. Personally I like to put lots of casualties on these to add to the effect of them being so exposed.
