great value!

I'm not even go0ing to ask how3 good the book is, it was written by Barry and that is enough for me. Although I don't play the period (or Napoleonics) I've been an avid collector of Barry's books for many a year. I have a copy of Beneath the Lilly Banners edition one that must have been a day old off the presses that i bought at SESWC! I'm still a subscriber to the League of Augsburg blog and one of the few who still post on fighting Talk- all of the 'content' is invaluable in a general sense.

You just can't go wrong in terms of inspiration.  8)

Hello!
Some time ago we had a nice exchange on this thread and since then I’ve been busy with 15mm French. Mostly Khurasan, but I managed to locate some Venexia infantry. The French infantry are mostly blue, with two units still in grey, and a Swiss in red.
The posts have been interesting and the 25’s are simply marvelous. I’m adding a couple of pictures of my 15’s. It’s the best work I’ve ever done.
Best regards

what an astonishingly superb thread
