Napoleonic French force ready for skirmish


These seven figures have taken me so long to finish.  Purchased at least ten if not twenty years ago at a Cancon jumble stall and languished in a lead pile as part of a crazy plan to build a 24 figure unit with then.  Songs of Drums and Shakos came to my rescue and I had a set of rules I was happy to use for Napoleonic skirmish that just need a few figures.  That was a good number of years ago, but at least within the life of this blog.

Anyway, they are finished now, ready for a game.  I've based them 15mm wide and 20mm deep so they can form up, but I only ever expect them to be used a singles, however, never say never.

Eustache
On the base was the number 129

Bastien
On the base FN3

Corentin
On the base FN3?

Adrien
On the base CR1980

Gaspard
On the base the Hinchcliffe symbol and FN4?

Fabien
Same figure as Eustache

Damien
On the base NP22

So I think they are mostly Hinchcliffe, but they are old whatever they are.

    1. According to my records I have some 24 figures in total for this "unit" which has my project code of F35. Not all Hinchcliffe though.

    1. Sadly figures do date, but they still retain their charm.

  4. Nice looking figures. Was it more relaxing painting them and not having another 300 waiting in a pile at the end of the table?
