I have always had a fascination with the Black Brunswickers of the Napoleonic Wars. The early reading of Otto Von Pivkas ( aka Digby Smith) Black Brunswickers Osprey Men at Arms fed the craving to read about them. I still recall a visit to CANCON, our largest wargaming show in Australia, many, many years ago where I saw the very lovely George Stosic playing the old WRG Horse and Musket rules with his Minifig Brunswickers on the field and they looked sensational.
I had the great opportunity years ago to meet up with Alan and Michael Perry one day in Nottingham to share a few beers and to buy my full complement of their wonderfully sculpted and designed Brunswick figures from their range. It was a memorable and most enjoyable wargaming experience for me.
|These are great sculpts however I have since re-based them and am about to add traces.|

|French columns meet Brunswickers with overwhelming odds. If memory serves they held up the advance |
for a while however the odds were simply too great.
Always like to try and find a few new shots to show these lads off as I love these figures. I think my youngest son has decided, like his old man, that these look the part in their cool black uniforms, that this is his force going forward.

Well done that man.
