Slowly building my French and Austrian armies for Napoleon’s campaigns in Italy. I’m making slower progress than I hoped but decided to set out what was finished along with some terrain recently made and purchased. The buildings are from Charlie Foxtrot Models. These are great kits and the website instructions on how to finish them lead to good results. The grass mat was purchased from Barrage Miniatures. When I ordered the mat they contacted me immediately to get my instructions on the colors and finish. Great service from Clara and team.
The flags are from GMB. They are actually for the Egyptian campaign but look nicer than anything I can download and print myself so I’m using them anyway.

Preferring Horse and Musket games and not wanting to duplicate existing armies, I decided on the Wars of the French Revolution. This period, particularly the early campaigns in Italy, provide a number of large and small scenarios. I decided on the Eureka Miniature figures for this period. These are incredible sculpts with a wide variety of poses, great detail, and very little flash. Also, Rob Walter of Eureka Miniatures USA provides excellent customer service with quick turnaround.
Here are a few picks of my progress so far.
