They look brilliant! The limited poses is what always keeps me from starting 40mm Napoleonics. Otherwise the scale would be great for little skirmish actions!

Thanks guys, the other nationalities have just enough different figures for this not to be a problem, its just the British unfortunayely.

Nice work Roger. I agree on the limited poses, and I find the Perry British a little too slim.
Your project is looking great though.

Well painted.
Too bad the Perry's only have one British line figure.

Indeed, hopefully I can make it wrk but its certainly not the same character as the Spanish and French units already done.

Nice AAR on the blog Roger. Very impressive to see most of the models on the table.

Hi RogerC I was just poking around on your blog with regard to the 40mm.

You appear to like a sort of "chaotic" unit look for the French with March Attack poses in the rear and a few musket lowered poses in the front. I dont dislike it myself but considering most gamers prefer one pose or another (ie. firing line, advancing or march attack), can you speak about your aesthetic vision?

Indeed, my preference would be a Perrys 28mm type approach, with all march attack or all firing line, different poses and heads, different campaign trousers etc so they are all marching or firing/loading but all individual. In 40mm we are pretty limited to one figure marching in habit and another, if we are lucky, in sleeved waistcoat, so if I want a unit with individuality I must rely on the odd figure at porte or with drummers etc to break things up a bit. Does that help?

It's a very good answer. I do 40mm Napoleonics as well; mostly all march attack poses.

What are we missing from 40mm Napoleonics? Any wish list for miniatures?

Where to start. There are so many gaps, there needs to be a regular injection of new product to keep 40s alive. We are relying on some pretty old ranges some of which really need re-mastering.

How many more ranges of 28mm French do we need, but they keep coming and they keep selling, so the answer is more new product and updated product.
