More Additions

I have been busy with doing a commission of 28mm Bavarians.  I have finished 180 and have 90 more to go.  But as an interlude, I a painted up a few units to round out a few of my collections.  The latest recruits include two regiments of cossacks, two of Austrian cuirassiers, and then two battalions of Poles, two Polish foot batteries and a unit each of Polish uhlans and chasseurs a cheval.  Here are a few pictures of the men on the table.  I am looking forward to seeing them in action soon.

My Polish forces are now at a healthy division strength with supporting cavalry.  They are now on par with my Bavarian contingent. The Austrians will now have a small reserve to support the corp already in place.
Along with the two regiments of cossacks, I painted up a light and heavy battery of Russian artillery, each of six gun models.  That corps now has five foot batteries and a horse battery.  Now back to painting 28mm Bavarians.

Recent additions

I  have painted up some reinforcements for the French side consisting of four regiments of Poles and three from the Confederation of the Rhine.  I am going to pick up some Polish artillery plus another couple of battalions to round out that contingent. They will come in handy when Napoleon has to take on the combined forced of the allies in future games.  Here are some pictures:
This is a Polish regiment of two battalions, each of 24 figures.  They are Old Glory 15mm.

I have one battalion of the vaunted Vistula Legion

These are the men from Lippe, part of the Confederation of the Rhine 5th Regiment.

And these are from Mecklemberg.  Very colorful indeed.
