Been awhile since I shared any of my painting. Lots of Napoleonics over the last year. Enjoy....

Thanks gentlemen. Lot of basing to catch up on. I tend to do it all at once to keep it consistent.

Here's a few more units, based this time.



Rebase of some original Old Glory figures here:





Also, took all my Old Glory French command sets and broke them up into named commander vignettes:



Over time, they'll end up like this. Sorry for the poor image here, colo(u)rs look flat...

Smörgåsbord indeed. British, French, Austrians and Prussians. And they all look great. I especially like your idea of themed command stands. They will be wonderful additions to your collection.

Looking very good - I'd recommend painting the edges of the flags.

Fantastic work! Really puts my output to shame.
Now what is this whole life of mortals but a sort of comedy, in which the various actors, disguised by various costumes and masks, walk on and play each one his part, until the manager waves them off the stage?
