Well, no games in this weekend, but I did finish up my Napoleonic forces, so next weekend I'm looking at getting them on the table for a solo game of Black Powder (modified, as I always do).
Again, these are 10mm forces that I DID NOT paint, but bought from Gunner at La Petite Armee. I've got quite an eclectic mix of forces here; on the one hand, I think I have enough troops to have a smallish game with any of the British (combined with Dutch and KGL), Prussian, Austrian, or Russian forces, a medium game with French vs. Brit/Dutch and Prussian, and a huge game with all the French (and their allies) vs. a grand coalition of Brit, Dutch, Prussian, Russian, and Austrian forces.
So, let's get to the pics:
The units are a bit strange, for game purposes. My units don't make a lot of sense historically, but are needed for game purposes in order to play at the echelon I want to achieve. So, each standard infantry unit of four bases is regiment-sized, as opposed to the more conventional battalion or brigade-sized. So, thinking in those terms, each set of two bases is a battalion, but, for game purposes, will be working together with another two-base battalion as a single unit, so a column, line, and square will actually be a regiment-sized element carrying that out. Sorry, I know it's strange, but it's what I need to do in order to field multiple corps per game.

Well, I am quite pleased to have gotten these finished, though I'm really jones-ing for a game. With Christmas nearly upon us, we shall see what the future holds. Thanks for looking, and hope you like the toys.
