Imperial Storm Troopers.
Because if you can learn to paint them and make white look good, your Austrians will look good, and once you've learned how to make Austrians in white look good, anything else you paint will look MAGNIFICENT!!!

I am putting absolutely no restrictions on your selection. All I am asking is what army you would buy if you were just getting into Napoleonics. You walk into a store, or go online, and there they are. Plastic or metal or paper or cardboard or Legos.
  • You can make whatever assumption you like.
  • You can assume that you have just joined a club with established palyers.
  • You can assume that your club is just getting into it.
  • You can assume you will be playing solo.
  • You can assume that you are just a collector.
  • You can assume any ruleset you want, or none.
  • You can assume your own favorite, or not.
  • You can think about it, or make a snap decision.
I am not even assuming that you need French, since the French did not monopolize the fighting at the time.

I am not even saying "first".

All I am asking is what army a newbie should buy.
