Napoleon takes a day out...


Second post in two days, I really have hit a purple patch.
Next up a set of French Officers from Brigade Games including Bonny himself. I picked up a couple of fish tank specials at the local pet shop which will be perfect for the desert campaigns.

I can't imagine where the inspiration for this photo came from..

Wonderful castings all of which it could be argued depict Napoleon.
Asuming he has not been cloned all can be used for various officers within my Sharp Practice collection. An exploring officer, Artillery officer or table top NCO?




I received my latest flag order from Grahame at GMB Designs, a very comprehesive list of standards and regimental colours, well printed and produced on a good quality paper. The only problem is it gets you thinking about additional regiments to match his flags..

The colour party.


I look forward to getting these on the table in the coming weeks although I am not sure the man himself will make an appearance, however it's always a little risking, what with the curse of freshly painted figures in their first game. The whole course of the war could change.

Not sure what will be next, but I see Perry Miniatures have released a couple of new packs so perhaps another order will be on the cards.

    Not sure what this fish tank obsession is with Roman/Greek ruins and Ancient Egyptian stuff is but it's good for us gamers!!!!

  5. Hmmm. I have been looking at those Egyptian releases from the Perrys over recent months and trying to resist. I can hear them calling to me now...

    2. Don't think I would have enough space for one, let alone three. I have been there and they are big...really big.
