"Our tribute to the heroic past is its armies in miniature, today."
Recreating a 1970s Wargame army using 20mm vintage figures.

A small parade
I managed to get the new 105th ligne based up over the weekend and here they are parading on the dining room table along with their chums from the 45th. Marshal Grouchy is out in front putting them through their paces.
When I finally get the Old Guard Grenadiers finished I will have a total of 7 French infantry battalions (well not all strictly French as this total includes the Poles and Swiss) plus the various skirmisher companies – quite a respectable army and way beyond the size of force I had imagined at the start of this project.
Now for a little quiz – what dubious honour do both these French regiments share?
