All,
When it comes to my perpetual Napoleonics project, I've been able to keep my nose at least occasionally in contact with the grindstone. Fresh on the heels of finishing off twelve infantry battalions (six French and six Austrian), I have completed my first four cavalry units. I say "units" as I'm not sure what they're supposed to be, so if you can help me steer me on the right track, please do. Here's the deal: I'll be playing the rules "Black Powder," and/or "Drums and Shakos Large Battles," maybe some "LaSalle." The base infantry unit is the battalion; so, to be on 'equal' footing with regards to rules and base units, would the base unit of cavalry be the squadron or the regiment?
In any case, these are great looking troops from Russ and Connie of Old Glory 25s, in 10mm Grand Scale, which I'm quite fond of. Each unit has a command base of Officer, Colors, and Music, and then three bases of troopers. There is one unit each of: Austrian Hussars, Austrian Cuirassiers, French Hussars, and French Line Lancers. Enjoy!

Anyway, hope you like them, and I continue marching towards the day I'm actually able to play a game. Hope we're all alive to see it ;)
V/R,
Jack

Loving your work
I have a 10mm project underway too. I'm using the new General d'armee rules. 10mm scale is the ideal scale for napoleonic gaming in my humble opinion and am finding the pendraken range a joy to paint.
Look forward to more pics of your hard work
