More Napoleonic odds 'n' sods

In preparation for next weeks game I have been finishing off the last of my available figures before another purchase is due. To add to Darren's French brigade I rustled up some left over French figures I had and put together a 20 figure regiment. Now as the Westphalian X corps contained a number of individual companies from French garrison which game a strength of roughly 2 battalions. These guys would be one such composite battalion. Also it makes up for the lack of elite companies. The figures are a mix of Warmodelling, Old Glory, AB and some I cannot identify, making it quite a mix.

As I missed them in my last post here is the first battalion of the Dutch 6th infantry regiment. These figures are all from Warmodelling.

 As I mentioned in an earlier post I was thinking of adding some light cavalry to my Austrians and so I have. Though I did make a mistake in my order and missed 1 command pack. So I have only been able to complete 1 unit so far until I can get my order sent off. These guys are the 2nd Hussar regiment, Erzherzog Joseph Anton, Palatin von Ungarn. I chose these guys as I liked the striking blue uniforms and red shako. The figures are all from Warrior miniatures as well as the flag.

To lead my Austrians I decided I needed something more than a simple command figure so instead went for something slightly more dramatic. I had a spare hussar figure, and AB model I think. That I have added to a base to represent him riding up to deliver a report to a commanding officer and his aide. The other 2 officers are from Warrior miniatures.

Following on from refurbishing the bases of Darren's French figures I volunteered to to the same to the British and Russian figures he has lying around the club. A quick look through reveals they are both at about brigade strength and I am sure we can find a use for them in our games. I always feel it is a good thing to dust off old figures and use them again.
