Just curious if those interested in the Napoleonic era war-game the Haitian Revolution, specifically the Leclerc Expedition in 1802-03. There are some pitched battles like Crête-à-Pierrot and Vertières. I would love to do these but don't know where to find the soldiers necessary.

I am currently gaming Haiti early in the revolution, but I have figs for the later 1802 Expedition waiting to be painted. Almost all of the figs I use are from Trent with some filler from Brigade Games and Foundry Casting Room.

Pics of figs can be found here:

@Flashman14 -- You did a great job with those OG Voodoo Warriors!

I added pics of my table and a few game shots. Takes place early in the revolution when the rebels were overrunning the plantations.

Where does the bare-chested slave with the cutlass come from, and the bearded slave with the machete, in the 7th photo?

"The Haitian Revolution of 1791-1803" An Historical Essay in Four Parts by Bob Corbett link

TMP link has a discussion about Haitian military uniforms & suggest the following 2 booklets/articles:
-René Chartrand's article "Illustrations of the Haitian Army in the 1820s" Military Collector & Historian Vol 53 n°4, 5 pages only 4 illustrations but data about uniforms and army composition
-Terry Hooker's compilation in El Dorado booklet n°6 Notes on Haïti 1793-1916 some data about Royal Guard uniforms


Tom Holmberg (The Napoleon Series Forum) has drawn attention to April 2011 "Soldats Napoleoniens" which has an article by Rene Chartrand on the uniforms of the Army of the Republic of Haiti (1804-1810), p. 73-82 link
