10mm Nap. French - Infantry 1

It is the weekend, the wife is out of town, so in between watching sports on TV let's spend some quality time with the newest toy soldiers!

This is the first showcase of a 10mm Napoleonic group... I am still not sure how I will break the infantry down and present it, so for now I'll just group some French infantry into a grouping that makes sense. I don't think that I will actually game with them in this way, simply because I do not have enough Voltigeur or Grenadier companies to do so!

This is a single battalion of French infantry. As is usual with the French, you can see that this one consists of six companies; four Fusilier companies, one Grenadier company, and one Voltigeur company. I also included three stands of Voltigeurs in skirmish order to the front, as well as a Chef d'battalion to lead the men.

As you can see, the figures are really beautiful. I have to give a lot of credit to the fellow I bought them from, as the paintjobs are really top-rate. There is so much proper detail, from the proper shoulderboards to the shako details... all of it is really top rate.

I allways find it depressing when people paint figsures one scale smaller then what I use and still make them look better then mine

Dude, they are two scales smaller than my 25mms, and they are still nicer:D Don't feel bad!

I was curious, what is the sq mm of each company base. Am I right in saying the figure ratio is 1:5

Howdy:)

Each base is 1 inch by 2 inches. As for figure ratio, I suppose that is about right if you consider each company is not at full strength. I would love to do a 1:1 unit, but I am not sure I have enough men:)

Check that; I CAN do 1:1. In fact, I did. I'll post photos:)

Nice! Those Old Glory 10mm figures are really excellent.
