Steve, this is for you! :-) Well, after a long haiatus, I am finally back to a wee bit of painting. I expanded on my first test figure and have finsied up the first 16 figures of a 36-figure battalion. Here they are based and pom-pomed to be the 1er and 2er Compagnie de Fusiliers.
I went with a "dry-ish" basing scheme for summer campaigning. The plan is to build generic forces for the Peninsular War, so again, it seemed most appropriate.
