....play with them!

So, having finished painting the British I have plenty of new units to baptise in the rolling flames of hostile dice.

I set up a fictional encounter for my Peninsular forces to battle it out on, keeping the terrain simple to aid speed of play eye candy terrain clutter (like fields, bushes, scrub, etc.) looks great but it does get in the way of things.

Here it is the game so far:

Despite not being into Naps myself, I have to say that those look absolutely splendid! Really, really good, and well worth the hard effort you clearly put into them. Well done, and I hope they bring you success on the table!  :D

That's a lovely looking game. Beautiful figures and a nice tidy table.

Fantastic eyecandy - thank you for sharing. Working my way through another 7 battalions of Brits and 8 of French so I know the pain. Still have Spanish and more portuguese to source !
