|1/8 Line regiment. The figures are Victrix and are still my favorite of the plastic figures.|
I never gave up on the dream of doing Napoleonic Black Powder games and have been slowly adding models to the collection and the paint queue. Today I finished the second French battalion for this project. Sadly, at this rate I will be too old to actually use them once I have enough painted for a game. That just means that I need to get on the ball and get some stuff painted!

I still have a couple of friends who have an interest in the project so things are not hopeless. In fact, I am working adding a collection of Russians. These will take a back seat to the French as you can't have a proper Napoleonic battle without the French. It feels good to get this project back on the paint bench.
I have two more Victrix line battalions assembled and in the painting process. Once those are done I will paint a commander and a gun and have a brigade ready for action. I would like to have this phase done by the end of the year.
