Not for this army, no!

So…tried and failed!   I got all the flesh tones and hooves on the horses…but I’d over phased myself….yet again!

So, calming it down, I’m now just concentrating on one regiment at a time, like I should have done in the first place!

Let’s see if I can manage a regiment over the next few days perhaps….

Join the BEST regiment in the army of Parliament and fight the length and breadth of these fair isles!

Nice of you to say fella.  However, I keep struggling to keep on top of it.

They’ve been around a while, pretty nice.


Ok, so finally, something to strike fear into the hearts of the British!  Vistula Uhlans….or my take on them at least. 

At Albuera, these fellas, along with a Hussar regiment, did great and awful damage, routing Colborne’s brigade and taking five colours.   

I’ve seen too many pictures and references both ways on which way up the pennant should be….in the end, red over white appealed more!

Anyway, glad to have this monkey off my back!

I now see why it took you so long to do this Napoleonic unit!  But it was worth the wait.  They look marvelous!  Well done, lad!

Not quite there yet fella.   Besides, waiting for my opponents to gather their forces.  I inyend to help in that with a few allies of my own.

First however, I want to at least finish two more brigades.  Next up, some dragoons to finish the second cavalry brigade and get me over half way….

Remind me just how BIG is your table David?

I do warn you we will pile up high all the copies of unused Napoleonic rules,
declare them the Lines of Torres Vedras, & hide behind them. :D
