Starting a new period

Yes, we've decided to delve into a new period - Napoleonics.  But we're going to focus on the Revolutionary Period.  We've picked a some nice figures for this part of the Napoleonic saga from Elite, Eureka, Victrix and maybe a few others.  Here is a picture of one, yes, only 1 figure from the Elite range for this period.  Elite calls it their 30mm Collector's Series 1796 Range.  It focuses on the Italian campaigns of Napoleon and he has some very nice French & Austrians figures available with more in the pipeline.  One other manufacturer that I like is Eureka.  They have a wonder 28mm range for this period and the figures look fantastic.  I don't feel that you could intermix the Elite & Eureka in the same unit due to their vastly different sculpting styles but side-by-side in different units, you bet and that is what we plan on doing.  So enough said, here is that picture of the one Elite Miniatures 30mm Collector's Series Frenchman.....

I didn't realize that it has been such a long time since my last post.  As always work is getting in the way of doing the important stuff in life.  We did another good WSS game in September and here are some pics from it.  We decided not to go with the large scale battle but instead have a few brigades on the table and as more people showed up we could then add additional brigades as needed.  Everyone had a great time and the table wasn't overly crowded which I think everyone one enjoyed as we had some real manuvering room.  Enough said, here are the pics.....
