This will be the 9th French Infantry battalion added to my little army. Sadly it's been a few years since any of the lads have seen the table top.
Each figure is based on a 20mm square metal base which are then grouped into companies using magnetic 60x40mm bases. I try to base all my 28's on single metal bases to make rebasing easy.
My French force now consists on 9 Infantry battalions (8 line, 1 Guard), 5 calvary regiments and only 3 artillery batteries. Hopefully the lack of Artillery will be remedied later on in this year's Challenge.
Ah, 'the beautiful game'... What a stonking unit of French Ligne - wonderful work, Miles. By your current count, I think you've gathered a fairly respectable French force over the past few years . Actually I've found that there comes saturation point in gaming in this scale as most tables can only accommodate so many 28mm units. I subscribe to Jim Purky's 'the rule of fours' in that a typical player can comfortably command four units within any game system (four battalions for a Brigade level game, four brigades for a Divisional level scenario, etc.) and after that it often starts to become a muddle as there is simply too much to process. Miles, what rules do you use for playing Napoleonics? Black Powder? Lasalle? There's so many titles out now that players are spoiled for choice (and Sam Mustafa's much anticipated 'Blucher' is due to be released in a few months, I think - my fingers twitch eagerly to get at copy of those) .
