I got a bit bored with 18mm, it happens. I saw the Front Rank 28mm reinforcement packs and thought I’d paint up some British peninsula figures.
I must say I really like them, they don’t take that much longer than 18mm.
Here’s my first efforts, I will do some more pictures when I finish the unit.
I only ever painted one of these battalions. You can see how I usually plan my French armies. I either a) 4 bases all fusiliers and just assume the flank companies are detached b) 4 bases with 1 as grenadiers and skirmishes as separate detached figures.
I always like big stands no more than 4 per unit. Usually between 24 to 32 figures.
Offensive minutes paint up very quickly and I think they look good. The range is a little limited but good enough for the bulk of the line in the Peninsula.
Here’s some eye candy of my last figures I painted. These are 28mm Napoleonics from Victrix.
I liked the figures, liked the variation but they just took too long to put together.
I painted 3 battalions in total and based them in 4 stands of 6 figures.
Ultimately I just haven’t got the space for 28mm figures. Liked them and would love to go back to them but my maximum table size is 6ft x 4ft, not really enough for 28mm.
