Just follow the link, something different from Old School 18th Century!

Very nice looking. Thanks.

Love the basing. It matches the most common ground colour and but you still have enough other colours and textures on there that the figures look right no matter where they are standing.

The fighting at Ste. Laie looks quite fierce. Hopefully all of the townsfolk were able to evacuate before the battle commenced.

I like the uniforms of the No.1 Yuggrad Infantry Regiment. I think if I did a Napoleonic imagi-nation I would include a lot of bicornes.

Thanks for posting. Does anyone ask you why you paint Napoleonic era soldiers as Imaginations armies rather than what the figure actually represents?

79thPA, no, no one ever asks! I admit it is unusual. I used to do normal Napoleonics twenty or more years ago, but sold off all the painted ones and gave up on that period. Then some years ago I had an urge to do an "imagi-naiton" campaign, but was reluctant to pay out on new 18th Century figures (which seem traditional for "imagi-nations" in wargaming). However, I had several boxes of old Hinchliffe unpainted figures languishing in my garage and so I decided to use them as a starting point, but not to just "pretend" my properly painted Prussians were the Kingdom of Nemea, but actually make them look like an army uniformed for an "imagi-nation". Eccentric, I know, and eyebrow raising for purists, but it's my bit of wargaming "fun". And I do normal stuff as well in other periods.
