Once again all the figures are 6mm from Commision Figurines in MDF. The more I work with these figures , the more I like them. They have a toy soldier quality that really appeals to me. I guess I also love how easy they are to paint. I now have enough basic infantry divisions. divisions for 3 of the 1809 army corps. Think I'll go for one more heheheh..
Ok enough rambling here are a few photos displaying the brigades in all their glory and a couple showing how our insert system works for Blucher. It is proving a very comfortable way to play the game. All three brigades are shown with attached artillery batteries.
I used all the latest ideas on these bases including a mounted officer, more than one flag some conversions to officers etc etc. They also have the new style bases with smaller labels. I think they are a great improvement on previous efforts.
We have played a good few games now with the new dice and insert system and it certainly speeds up play and makes remembering traits etc much easier. Below are a couple of pictures demonstrating how the insert and labelling system works.
Coritani magnetic displays. We have tickets reproducing various formations and simply replace them for the units we want to use. If you look at the labels you can see that most of the info is excess baggage but I like having it and think it all adds to the atmosphere if you have brigade names etc to quote in AAR's The dice have been a great addition. and certainly reduce the need to hunt for a china-graph after every casualty heheh
I have actually run out of Austrian figures to paint so maybe I'll do few French cavalry units next! Come on posty gimee my next order hahahahah.
