One word of advice when you get the figures home is to brush the musket barrels with a superglue to strengthen them. I find them too weak and easy to break off but brushing them with superglue prior to priming and painting helps.
Now on to the photos (flags are by Adolfo Ramos in Spain) -
As always, thanks for looking. Comments welcome.

Almost all of my units have oversized cloth flags from The Flag Dude and they look amazing. A couple units have GMB flags and a couple have paper I did up from Warflags.
Most all figures will cost $8USD apiece and a cavalry figure is made up of 2, the rider and the horse (the Garde costs more). I'm also charging for the flags as they cost $12USD apiece. So a typical foot unit with 4 cloth flags will cost $240.USD. I cannot offer 'volume discounts' as I did not paint these in volume. Shipping costs, if any, will depend on the number of units purchased.

I've kept myself busy in between looking for a new job by continuing with my 1806 Prussian project. I'm working on the second line regiment in a brigade. My overall plan (really hope) is to paint up an 1806 Prussian division and then I could match it against a division from one of the Corps from the French. I know I'd need to have a few 'extras' on both sides to make it an interesting game but I think it would be fun. My plan is to use 'Republic to Empire' as the rule set to game with and I think it offers some really interesting possiblities for a close, tight game. Anyway on to the photos of the Prussians. This is the first battalion of I.R. 33 and the fantastic flags are those made by Adolfo Ramos.
Next are the WSS (War of Spanish Succession) Bavarians. I've had them sitting around for quite a while all primed and ready to go but I just felt that I didn't know what colors to use to get the sky blue (or whatever you want to call it) for the Bavarians. After painting up the 1806 Saxon Hussars I felt I'd finally found the right colors to use. I've not fully finished the unit as I'm waiting for flags. Adolfo doesn't make WSS flags for the Bavarians so I'll probably turn to The Flag Dude. Unfortunately since I'm unemployed I'll have to wait a few weeks for some additional funds to become available before I can order them. I'll order them using the 'cloth' paper he has which I think give the flags a really nice realistic look. So since the flags are not on the unit yet I've not mounted the standard bearers nor done the finishing work on the bases but at least you'll get a look at my interpretation of WSS Bavarians.
