Nice. You can't beat Alec's civilians, or most of his Napoleonic stuff for that matter.

I'm pretty sure they are Front Rank.

Iam  amazed by the painting of the cavalry. Looking great.
I like the civilians too and I would also like to know from which company they are.
Really Front Rank ?
Thank you.

Yes, sorry, they're Front Rank. I thought I'd put that in (obviously I hadn't).

A very inspiring thread. Lots of great miniatures and some lovely scenery. That semaphore tower made me want to do a Hornblower-type scenario with a landing party from the Royal Navy and maybe some Spanish Militia. I have downloaded your rules, they look very good for what I want, nice cards too, thanks.  :)

All set up for a game this evening to mark the 201st anniversary of Waterloo. Richard Sharpe and Etienne Gerard meet on a battlefield for the first time.















My big house and gabions get their first outing along with the first appearance of cavalry on the tabletop and a try out for the new leadership rules. Exciting stuff!

All set up for a great looking game.

We had two games. The French (actually my daughter single handedly) won the first and lost (just) the second. The idea was to collect forage and leave the table with it. First to 10 points won. There were several bases of livestock and crates/barrels each worth 1 point scattered about and two cards, each worth 6 points, in the central area.

What follows are my daughter's Snapchat photos and comments that she posted to her friend during the game. I hope you enjoy her perspective :)

Wow. I can hear the smack talk from here. She took nice photos though.
