I've had a set of "Sharp Practice" by Too Fat Lardies for a while, its a really good set of skirmish rules for the Black Powder period. When I got the rules I knocked up some Perry Miniatures 95th and the only thing thats been holding me up is the thought of painted 30 or so Napoleonic French. Its very easy for me to get carried away painting and spending too much time on them so I thought I'd have a look on eBay. The plan was to look for a French Infantry battalion of about 30figs for a good price, mount them singly and tart them up a bit. I didn't think this would be a particularly easy task but I managed to get a unit of 24 for an extremely good price of about £2 per figure. The figures are mainly Foundry with a few Crusader thrown in and bearing in mind the castings are about a quid a shot the painting worked out at £1 per figure. Bargain!
I won them and then started flapping a bit in case the quality was poor. They arrived very quickly and I'm very pleased with the quality and style. Have a gander at the photo below. Dougie
