Tom's in Nappy's

A project I have wanted to do for a very long time is Napoleonics. I had an abortive attempt at 28mm French a few years ago but couldn't face painting that much 28mm Napoleonics, plus there has been a lack of rules which excite me. So recently an opportunity to play a cool, fast moving game has sprung up and it uses 15mm. Bandwagon was immediately jumped on. I bought some AB figures from Eureka - had to have Highlanders and British Line - and I am cracking on with the paint job. I am not the worlds most knowledgeable historian of this period, in fact most of my excitement comes directly from the Sharpe books. This is leading to me creating a force I like the sound and look of rather than anything particularly historically accurate. I have also resisted the temptation of buying and painting the 95th Rifles (Sharpes lot). So these will be a generic bunch of troops so I can play and enjoy the game of the movie of the history. :)
Cheers All Tom
