|Complete with side plumes these early Elite Miniatures French legere look the part.|
As those who have been following this blog for a while would know one of my favourite pastimes at present is the 1805-07 "Glory Years" armies for this period. Just to prove that the project still has legs I thought I would post some more shots of works in progress.
|A few Front Rank musicians and a lovely drum major figure helps fill the ranks|
First up is one of three legere battalions from the Elite Miniatures range available in Australian from Nathan. As you can see I have elected to base my command stand in the old school with the Peter Gilder In The Grand Manner style with the Regimental Colonel slightly in front of his other commands bases. I think it looks quite good and will do this with all of my Elite battalions from now on.
|The rest of the lads awaiting colours and the final matt varnish|
|Beautiful hand painted Mark Allen specials for these lads await!|
As you can also see I asked wargamer to the stars Mark Allen to paint up a few flags for the newest reinforcements and they have arrived and look sensational.
|Skirmishers for General D'Armee will be on these three to a base oval shapes.|
|Russians are still getting themselves ready as well|
|Always something to do upstairs in the room...life does sometimes get in the way though.|
All that now needs to happen for the French is to ensure there is no residual static grass anywhere and then give them all a good spray of dullcote and get them on the field for some General D'Armee Napoleonic battles.
