I already have some Napoleonic in 15mm however the lure of the 18th Century is too much of a pull. I have a few old SYW Minifig Figures plus some Dixon Marlburian Cavalry, left over from the collections sold many years ago, which can be used at a pinch.
Well I started painting some Blue Moon French 15mm figures however I wanted too create big battalions a la Grant (48 figures, 4 officers and a mounted CO). Digging around I found 8 Austrian Minifig Grenadiers and some Lanchashire games French to bring the numbers up to full strength.
It's been a while since I painted 15mm however I found them easier to paint than I thought.
Anyway here they are with the full unit deployed in line. In all the unit is 24cm, or over 9 inches, in length. A unit this size will be interesting to move and maneovre on the table top. More thoughtful planning and positioning will be required to bring these into action.
A slightly closer look.
In addition I have renovated these old Minifig Austrian Cuiassier. Both these units will form part of my Imperial Army.
These are organised as 6 figure squadrons with an officer type.
