.....as opposed to the others I have posted. Having received some more troops from that nice Ian Crabb , of War and Peace Games ( see my links) I have pushed ahead with my personal project.,one of two planned.. I am aiming to do an Empire French Infantry division force..with a core of 8 battalions a battery and commanders and two organic brigades, one each of elite infantry and a light cavalry , and with at least a cuirassier brigade as a reserve brigade. Foucussing on 1812 allows allows a wealth of allied Brigades ,might do a Westphalian cuirassier brigade with Perry cuirassiers..any way it all rounds out with 342 infantry 2 foot batteries , 2 horse batteries,24 cuirassiers and 32 light cavalry ..and .. well I have to do it in my spare time between painting everything else but I wish to get ready for Goulburn's Napoleonic weekend late in the year..
so ..I have assembled the skirmish markers for 9 units ..I am going to paint two bases for each unit ..one as voltiguers and one as grenadiers..to represent the skirmish value of 2. Having bough some victrix from Ian at cancon , and having found them just too much for me I have used some of their bits to help individualise the Perry skirmishers..
