I have long adored Napoleonic war gaming, but could never bring myself to buy and paint the hordes of troops needed to play it at the grand scale. I also have several friends who have dedicated many, many hours to this end, including my particular friend, the esteemed Mr. Pancake Payne who’s Napoleonic forces are a joy to behold.
This being said, I have decided to start a collection of Napoleonic miniatures, much in the same vein as my Greek Mythology project. To start, a Royal marine landing party from Foundry Miniatures.

Oh, these are beauties! Lovely faded color palette, and the faces are fantastic. What I want to know is who is observing from the bushes?
Thank you sir! I really struggle to get red to look good to my eye but I’m quite happy with this shade. As for our native observer.. Who knows?
Great minis and a great shot of them too. That’s it now, your collection has started and will never stop growing hehe.
Very true!? Fortunately I have come to terms with my ‘dragon sickness’ and have learned to control my more impetuous instincts. I now think long and hard before I embark on such an endeavor.
Nice start! Is that Sean Bean I spy there?
Ha! I’m afraid not, but Hornblower is viewing proceedings through his spyglass on the poop deck of HMS Sphinx for sure! He’s hard to see because of the poor angle 😉
That is funny, when I looked at the picture I immediately thought of Hornblower as well, and also (probably because of the boat) the Treasure Island movies.
It definitely has a swashbuckling air! 🙂
I have always liked Foundry miniatures if I was not more into 15mm I would always go with Foundry if I had a choice.
They are great minis, I miss the time that Foundry was just a tram ride from my home and I could go down there and rattle blisters to my hearts content.
