My 2019 gaming project started a little early in 2018: I'm planning on starting with a French force to add to my already painted collection. Hopefully I can get more members of the Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) club to jump in too.



The local gaming group here in San Antonio Texas has embraced 28mm Napoleonics since playing in a game of "Le Baton" at MillenniumCon (our November gaming convention). About 10 guys purchased some figures and are now playing regularly.



Here are a couple of "test" units of French Ligne (line) and Legre (light) battalions. I am using some new techniques on these units. I will go mass production starting with French and French allies (I currently have a good size French, Polish and Wurttemberg force). Then on to Russians, Austrians, British and Prussians.




It will be a busy (and FUN) 2019!!

Good job Charlie I did the same in 2010 and they get LOTS of play in our club

Thanks Tod – 70+ degree's here in south Texas – how is it up there in Ottawa? Have a great Christmas day.

Good looking figures, good luck with your project.

70 degrees C? Yer kidding.

I thought Texas got blizzards in winter (seriously). Folk die in rainstorms, drowning. North Yorkshire today…….actually not bad. Glorious sun (which never quite rose over the moors hills) and 4 degrees C max.

and these figures are great. It takes real talent to produce individual figures. A formation in line covers a multitude of errors.
