Giant Commission -- Guard Cavalry Reinforcements

Freshly sealed this morning are these 18 cavalry reinforcements for Napoleon's guard!  Before this commission I had never painted any Imperial Guardsmen.  Now I am feeling quite expert.

This batch completes Glenn's reinforcements.  On to the Prussians!

This batch finishes up Glenn's foot reinforcements.  I have 18 horsemen to paint, then this whole batch can go in the mail!

28mm ACW Artillery

These 22 guns have been a LONG time in the making.  Checking my notes, I see that I started these guns in November of 2009.  They were sitting, half completed, for over seven years!

My 28mm ACW artillery bases have four crew but no gun.  By swapping in these models, I can use the sane crew in all my games.  I have 12 bases for each army.

12-pdr Napoleon,  3" Ordinance Rifle

10-pdr Parrot, 6-pdr Smoothbore.

With these guns complete, I am ready to try a game with the Pickett's Charge rules.

Giant Commission -- French Reinforcements

Glenn needs more Frenchmen to fight Austerlitz, so more Frenchmen he will get!  These figures are in the 1812 uniform.

28mm ACW Aides de Camp

In my last order from Litko, I bought 25 2" by 1" "pill" shaped bases.  I have been reading the new Pickett's Charge rules, which call for several aides de camp per side.  I think this would be a workable way to denote couriers.

Three of the figures are from Sash and Saber, while the bald Union officer removing his cap is from Old Glory.  I hope to put on a Pickett's Charge game this year.
