latest figures

This is my latest unit to be added to my Napoleonic French collection. These are 15mm Old Glory figures in two battalions. I still have to add the flag to the Eagle. I also painted up a battery of Old Guard 12lb guns and a brigade commander. While small in numbers, I am sure they will carry their weight on the gaming table.

On this very important day of remembrance I wanted to pay tribute to the many in my family who have served in our armed forces and risked everything to protect our way of life. My great uncle died in World War I in a valient effort to reach the "lost battalion." My paternal grandfather was at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, aboard the USS Utah. My maternal grandfather served in the airborne during WWII and received the Purple Heart three times. What a legacy they are to me.

Thank you to all who are currently serving our country. I am in your debt.
