200th anniversary of Waterloo and what can be better than starting a whole new collection   Leave a comment

I could not stop myself from being pulled into another period of miniatures.  What better period than the most grandiose!

Napoleonic Painting

I didnt just dabble in Napoleonics… I went big! (but with a new scale for me 6mm)

I believe I have enough miniatures for Austerlitz.  There must be three corps of French Infanty, 2 Corps of cavalry, and artillery.  Not to mention a simila number of Austrians and Russians plus a few British and Prussians.

My biggest issue Is that I knew nothing about the period going into it.  I picked Austerlitz (1805) as the battle I was going to build to, but I ended up buying miniatures from Baccus and Adler based on 1809 and later uniforms.

I will use the Blucher Ruleset for gaming at this scale.  I even bought some 28mm Perry British Infantry, French Infantry, and French Hussars.

Napoleonic French

French Regiments of Line infantry.  Each base can represent a regiment or brigade.  I will use two combined together to make a brigade for Blucher.

Napoleonic Old Guard

The majority of the infantry are Baccus.  Very easy to paint..  The larger miniatures are Adler and those are Old Guard Grenadiers
