Despite all the problems related in my earlier post I have managed to get six new 72-figure units finished for use in my demonstration battles at Napoleonic re-enactment events.
They are standard infantry units for red army and blue army, with four bases of three strips of Irregular Miniatures old-style French Napoleonic Infantry on a 2cm square steel base. The painting is deliberately “toy soldier” style to fit with their natural environment, as seen in the photographs.
An advantage of this mounting in 3-rank blocks is that the painted strips can be sorted before basing. Those with the best cross-straps go in the front rank, those with the best pack and pouch detail go to the rear and the rubbish goes in the middle rank.
