Napoleonic units : Taking Stock

A few (bad) photos of my Napoleonic figures. I came across a great set of old school rules called 'Muskets & Marshals' which upon reading took me right back to my teenage years when I took
Art in some epic games at Stoke Wargames Group.
The rules call for 24 figure infantry and 12 figure cavalry units with artillery batteries being represented by single guns.
I still need to get more units on the table to be happy with the 'look' that I'm after but I think that's the curse of every gamer.... never enough toys!
My French force consists of 8 infantry units, 2 cavalry units and 4 guns a with my combined Austrian  /  Russian force consisting of more or less the same ( with a little more artillery )
I'm currently working on more Russian infantry but also need to get light infantry units for all forces sorted at some point!

Bolt Action pictures

I've been slowly rebuilding my WWII forces up over the past few months using fool old school 1/72nd plastics and this week I had a little time to start a Bolt Action game. I'm enjoying the rule set, it's simple, easy to learn and fun to play ( even solo as I am doing ) . Here's a few pictures of the game so far. Enjoy.

I'm back!

Ok, just a quick post to let anyone who's interested know that I will be making a return to WWII gaming in the very near future!
My latest project will be based upon using good old 1/76th scale .... or 20mm plastics and I will be using a set of mega simple rules. Maybe I'm just hankering after my youth but I'm really looking forward to it!
