Was just putting the final touches on my first five man squad of 25mm Napoleonic greenjackets, and it brought to mind something I've often thought over the years.
Generally speaking, there are some really traditional units that wargamers have. Almost every ACW gamer has painted up the Irish Brigade, for example, whereas most Napoleonic gamers have painted up either some Rifles or some Old Guard, and WWII gamers tend to have a Tiger or an 88 in the collection.
Now, the thing is, I don't know what the "unit everyone has" are for a lot of the periods and forces that I don't collect!
So... what are some of the units that YOU guys think are real "everyone's got'em!" units in the different collections?
