Christmas Has Come Early

I had an opportunity to pick up a good deal on some AB Napoleonics painted by Dragon Painting Services.  Superb paint job and presentation.  Only a few are worse for travel (partly due to me being over eager in opening the boxes).

Twenty two units in total - 9 French infantry, 2 French cavalry, 1 Prussian cavalry, 5 Russian infantry and 5 British/Scottish infantry.  As always my army is going to have more kilted Highland regiments than there actually were, but they look good and at least for these I won't be painting their kilts, socks and other stripey bits.  Only problem is all my highlanders are all bloody Gordons!

The basing is perfect for Napoleons Battles, although I might tone down the flocking to more match my style.

Now when someone asks me what I want for Christmas I will point to one of these units.
