I have the 4 metal Brit command figures u/coated already to go. The metal figures are a good match for the plastics, maybe a little more detailed facially but I'm nit picking there. I also have enough figures for the next 2 French line battalions...... so on we go.
I'm going to order some cavalry next.
Now a Question about rules. it is clear that my goal is to collect nice figures/units rather than play accurate table top games, but that said I do want to be able to play some fast and simple games with them down the line. I want a set of rules that are 'retro' in mechanism, fast and quickly memorable, the emphasis being on the 'fun' aspect. I'm trawling through the 'freewargamesrules' site looking for something to suit but will throw this open for suggestions? I really like the WRG rules but my basing style wont work now and I want to keep my 2 deep basing style, I have never liked a single rank of figures in line even though I know it is accurate in terms of width and depth! The old 'Quarrie' rules are proving somewhat complex in reading, and will clearly play very slowly ( as you said Ian:-) ).
'Stryker' what rules do you intend to use for your HH project? Are you going 1970's rules too? Anyone else knows of a good playable but fun set of Napoleonic rules please post them here for me, I'd appreciate that. Cheers.
More pics to follow shortly.
