British Napoleonic Era Riflemen

I only had a few Minifigs Riflemen remaining so I thought I’d best finish them up because then I could say – that unit there… DONE!

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

British Riflemen from Minifigs. I’m  not sure if the figures were meant to be Riflemen… but that’s what I’m using them as… These are based individually for skirmish gaming with Song of Drums and Shakos

Here they are with the rest of the unit that I painted up four years ago…. There are a few Wargames Foundry  figures mixed in with them. I’m seriously tempted to pick up a pack or two of Perry Miniatures skirmishing Riflemen… but really… WHY?! This is, like, 600+ points worth of riflemen and the game is usually only played with 400 points…

A few more Minifigs I’ve recently painted – these are based for bigger battle games. I’d previously painted two other stands (oh, three years ago) but decided I should have two more - Napoleonic Wargaming by Neil Thomas requires units with four elements…

Here is the whole unit in extended line.

Another picture of the whole unit…

I started looking around and planning and plotting and trying to figure out what I’d need and how much it would cost to finish putting together British, French and Prussian forces for Napoleonic Wargaming… the realized it’s probably not going to happen this year. It would mean a couple hundred dollars for each - and I’ve got Great War stuff I need to get cracking on.

I might break down and buy a pack or two of this and that for skirmishing with Song of Drums and Shakos… We shall see… 

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Terrain… that last game report from the campaign…. Maybe some game reports from a new game.
