I just finished a second unit for my SYW project. It's the French Gardes Lorraines. More pics on the blog:

Nice. Is this going to remain a small project (no pun intended).

Yes, I don't have a large table to game on (or the attention span for the truly large battles), so I thought I'd game the smaller engagements, the Kleinkrig, between the Allied Army & the French.

I've discovered there were plenty of these engagements where the armies would detach a "corps" of a few battalions of foot, a few squadrons of dragoons, some hussars and other light troops to take an objective such as a bridgehead or crossroads or supply depots, etc. If there is any artillery involved, it is usually light pieces such as battalion guns.

I applaud you for keeping a project to a manageable size (for now).
