At Triples Peter at Baccus gave me a command stand for the soon to be released Napoleonic French to have a play with. Unfortunately I was not feeling the urge to paint them as soon as I got them as I was tired and not really wanting to paint. Fortunately that mood has passed and last night I stormed through the three French Battalions on my desk and also worked on this stand of figures.
Due to poor light and drizzle I can only take shots inside. Hopefully they do good enough justice to get the Naps fans queuing up to get their hands on the packs as soon as they are released. I am looking at getting at least one 12 Battalion Booster though I will buy a few more once the Waterloo French are finished. I will be looking at getting the Waterloo infantry as soon as they come out as well.
I added the flag to finish off the stand and will use this with my first battalion I paint up once I have the pack so these will have to wait for them. All depends on the date the new French will be available to what infantry I paint next. I have three French cavalry regiments already prepped so these will be slotted in, especially the Guard Light Cavalry as they will be needed for Joy of Six in July so need doing soon!
As you can see from the images above these are really nice looking figures and I look forward to getting a good number of Battalions of these painted as I think the mass effect will be very effective.
Anyway I am off to Partizan this weekend so hope to see some of you there. I will have both kids at this one and we are there to play more than buy as I have finally decided to try and rein in the spend by keeping a record of bought V painted starting with May, though at some point I will go back through what I have on hand and add those to the mix, watch out it's going to get ugly.
