Hi,
I'd like to replace some 18mm french revolutionnary hussars in mirlitons that were lost; problem, those were bought in early 2000, and I do not have the foggiest idea of what it was. The shop who sold it closed in 2012, so I can not check that way.

I only found 2 manufacturers that have such minis today, Old glory and Battle Honour. Old glory site has photos, so I'm sure it's not those one, but does any of you have bought some from BH and care to share photos of it (painted or not)?
thanks in advance

Thanks von Winterfeld !

Last year we played the Apennine campaign including battles at Voltri, Dego, La Pedagiera and Mondovi. Some of the scenarios have been published in French magazine Vae Victis.

At that time I planned to make scenarios for the whole 1796 Campaign but my PC crashed with all my material the very morning I had to send the next article to the mag. After that I never have enough courage to re-write it again.
Fightings at Borghetto, Codogno and Lodi were part of it with special rules for the crossing of the bridge, etc.

One day I hope to be back to my 1796 project.
I'd like to play Lodi with the "real" wooden bridge and then go to Castiglione and Rivoli. But first I also need to paint more Austrians.

Hopefully you will publish your research again, 1795 with Loano, the brake through which enabled Bonaparte's first Italian campaign might be an interesting scenario as well.
