Parking PBP on the Sidelines
I'm delighted to report that I've been working on my Napoleonics for Sharp Practice 2. I'd like to claim that I've done all you can see here in the last week or so, but that would be lying. Whilst the British troops almost exclusively live up to that boast (save for Sharpe!) I'm afraid that cannot be said for the rest of the miniatures. I've been making the odd model here and there for the last year and a half if I'm completely honest. What you can see in this post is a record of the story so far.I go off topic here. As you can see, my French miniatures are mainly from Victrix with some Perry plastics in the form of my Dragoons. I've also purchased some of their metal Napoleonic miniatures to complete the force, and I hope to be able to show you some of these in the coming weeks as time permits. My British force comes from a box of Perry plastics. I've purchased an extra sprue of the infantry and of riflemen to make up the numbers. I also have a pack of metal mounted officers to complete the force.
As you can see in the next photo, I use Really Useful Boxes to stope my models. I attach 20mm square pieces of steel sheet which I cut from sheets I get from Magnetic Displays to the bottom of the boxes. I can fit eight in a row across the box. I attached magnets to the bases of my models. I purchase these from The Fridge Magnet Shop on eBay. So far I've been able to make 6 95th Rifles to accompany Sharpe, a solitary Light Infantryman and 9 Infantrymen. I've clearly got a long way to go!
