Perrys Finished, link to Youtube post

I have just finished the last two regiments from my Perry Battle in a Box set.  There are now four regiments on each side, plus two cannons and crews and six cavalrymen as well as a general officer.  I have enjoyed this project very much.  My plan is to use this as a vehicle to introduce my grandsons to the marvelous hobby of historical wargaming.

A Union regiment.
Some rebels in mostly gray uniforms.

This is the special officer figure you get if you order the set directly from the Perry Brothers' web site.
I have also, at long last, gathered all of my 28mm Napoleonics from around the house and set them all up on my gaming table to get an idea of the size of my collection.  I was truly amazed at how large it has become.  I literally have collected it a box at a time over the last several years mainly because I love painting the larger figures.  I have never gamed with them; I simply collect them.  But I am quite proud of them.  Even my wife commented on how colorful they all were.  That is indeed high praise coming from her!

Here's the link to my Youtube post.  Please let me know what you think.
