The Joy of Six Countdown 1 The Big Man Himself

Well I could hardly end the countdown with anyone other than Napoleon could I? These are the four mounted figures that come in the My Little Ogre playset by Baccus and I finally got them finished this very evening.

I really like the colourful Mameluke in the background, something to add a little interest to the base.

I have used a round base to further distinguish Napoleon from any of the other commanders on the table, which I hope Lee does not mind.

So this is it, in 12 hours time we will be well on our way to having the table laid out and in 24 hours I am sinking into my chair to watch TV and hopefully stay awake to get to the end of Human.

Thanks for all the support I have received on this project, it has REALLY helped keep the project on track. Any of you visiting the show please pop and have a chat and make sure you ask The Boy about his Commands & Colours Waterloo game he will have set up, he is looking forward to giving you the low down.
