|My collection of Imperial French.|
|The French Army command base|
|Artillery batteries and their limbers.|
|No creme filling here! Bavarians lead an aggressive assault!|
|A wall of horseflesh. 2 squadrons of Carbiniers and 4 squadrons of Cuirassiers.|
Again, the army has a little over 500 28mm models in it from various manufacturers - the Perry Twins, Old Glory, Victrix and Front Rank make the up the bulk. I'm sure I'll add to both armies in the future, but right now they are in a good place to give some big battles with a lot of variety.
|French line infantry advance while some Swiss mercenaries guard the Army HQ.|
|More infantry! The brigadier General model in the front is entirely plastic and built from several kits.|
|The Old Guard Grenadiers hold the river crossing.|
|Skirmisher elements harass the enemy from across the river.|
I'm really happy with my decision to base these units on single large plates. It's given me the chance to do some really evocative modeling on some the units that I don't feel like I could have done on smaller sub-divisions.
|The sound of muskets crashes and causes the front rank to fall! Press on brave Frenchmen! Press on!|
|The Old Guard form a square and prepare to fight to last man!|
|Mein Gott! Look out for that cannonball that just came to a halt!|
|I was also able to add ruined artillery and assorted bric-a-brac to the bases as well.|
