Okay; I am starting in on a new 28mm Napoleonics project, and I was hoping for some input!
I have this figure sitting around from my last subscription to Wargames Illustrated:
I've had it sitting for a while, and last night I decided that I'd finally get to painting it!
So, what I am going to do is the traditional big scene of Napoleon and his generals/officers. He is going to be sitting at the front, alone, as seen above. A number of officers will be sitting behind him, with several waiting respectfully a little ways back, as if they don't want to disturb him.
I am going to use a few packs. The first I am using is this one from the Perry Twins:
I love this set, particularly because of the table and the officers writing orders at it.
However, I am torn about which set to use along with this. There are two I am looking at.
The first is this one, of French generals.
The second is this one, of "random" French officers.
I only want to use one of these two, as the costs for using all three are just a bit much for me (unless someone out there wants to split those costs and the figures!)
I like the set of generals because it is appropriate; those are the guys who would be around Napoleon.
However, I like the LOOK of the second set far more; very colorful, and I love that there are representatives of so many different cool units of the French Napoleonic army. But no generals? Is that possible?
So; what does everyone think? Which should I use? Just as an FYI, this is purely for display; it is not for actual gaming.
Thanks in advance for the input!
