Alas, now that I'm supposedly an adult I apparently have to buy my own minis. Swallowing my reluctance I hoped on the internet and bought myself a number of lovely plastic kits from Italeri, HaT and Zvezda, to start the process of making my armies more sane. Here I present the first fruits of my endeavour, a French line battalion:
The figures are a mixture of Italeri's French Infantry 6066, and HaT's Young Guard 8034. The Young Guard are painted as if they are regular line infantry wearing greatcoats. Each base represents a company, which puts the battalion at around 1 figure per 30 men. I've got the figures to paint up four more, so I should be well on the way to having a more balanced force once they're done. Let's hope I remember to take pictures...
