I could not stop myself from being pulled into another period of miniatures. What better period than the most grandiose!
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.
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.
The majority of the infantry are Baccus. Very easy to paint.. The larger miniatures are Adler and those are Old Guard Grenadiers
Adler French Cavalry
Red Lancers from the Imperial Guard
Grenadiers a Cheval from the Imperial Guard
Impress Dragoons from the Imperial Guard
The two regiments above represent the 15th and 17th Dragoons. They are from Baccus.
French Artillery. The blue is not that bright under normal lighting conditions.
