This week I have painted 36 infantry and 1 mounted general, all AB's. French Grenadiers, Cacadores and a couple of Spanish bases. I decided to start a small Spanish contingent for DBN, which will eventually consist of 2 line bases, 1 Grenadier base, 1 Militia base and 1 light infantry base (Catalonians in Tarleton helmets). The AB figures are packed full of character.
I have decided that going forward I will now focus totally on AB's which means that cavalry join the queue despite my earlier reservations about the very slight size difference, mainly the heavy cavalry. The light cavalry are a good match for Blue Moons and I guess the French heavy cuirassiers and carabiniers should rightly be mounted on big horses anyway.
Edit: make that 42 infantry!
|Catalonian light infantry - I did read that some continued to wear the 1803 uniform until 1808, good enough for me to include a 6 figure skirmish base!|
* Bit of trivia - Tiny Wargames are based at number 68 Hatton Garden, London, which happens to be the same building where I worked for two years when it was a commercial lithographic printers. I worked there from 1977 to 1979, having completed my apprenticeship at Municipal Mutual Insurance Company in Westminster.
