I haven't really blogged much about Napoleonics. It's been a long dormant project really. I just finished basing this limbered 6lb gun. It has been painted for probably 5 years!

There's a little more on the blog. And hopefully I'll get more of my napoleonics up soon:

Lovely! What I like about Calpe is that they do 'gunners on the march'. Infantry and cavalry in similar uniforms are usually in the wrong pose so the Calpes and some Foundrys are almost unique. I wish more manufacturers did them for horse and foot.

Oh let me echo that several times…we need Horse Artillery mounted and foot walking, just like these.

I do like Calpe and used this very set up some years ago for "The Road to Plancenoit". My gun was well into the mud and the riders had good reason to flog the horses!

Excellent! I do like the color, and it seems there is a variation to what it should be. After I get all my combat units done vehicles and limbers are going to be my main priority.

Calpe has superior figures. If I could ever afford to buy them I would paint several corps of 1813 Prussians.
