From CarsonG: 15mm Napoleonic Austrian Infantry and Artillery (58 points)


I want to extend a big welcome to our new Challenger, Carson, for a couple reasons. First, he's a Saskatchewan boy like myself which means he's both very hardy and a bit 'touched'. Second, this entry marks his first foray into historical gaming after a very long (and very successful) career in the Warhammer Fantasy tournament circuit. Welcome to 'The Beautiful Game' Carson! Now, we just have to get him converted to the 'Proper Scale', right Dave... ;)

From Carson:
My first of many Regiments for Napoleonics to complete. Still waiting for the flag to show up in the post, but I couldn't wait any longer.

#1 Kaiser Grenadier Regiment (seen at beginning of post) with an attached Battery, Under Kollowrath's command at the Battle of Austerlitz.
Very nice work Carson. Are these Old Glory castings? Anyway, once you have a few more battalions under your belt we'll have to get these lads out with Dallas' French for a proper bash-up.

The Kaiser's Own and their attached artillery will give Carson 58 points. Again, welcome to the Challenge!

    1. Oh, I don't think he's leaving WHF yet (he's too good at it) - he's just diversifying! Patience Ray, one step at a time...

    2. Perhaps we should stage an intervention. We can't leave a brother on the edge of oblivion now can we?

      Well done with the Austrians mate. Nice ground work to set them off too. Its always good to see lots of furry hats.

  5. Welcome Carson, a fine debut! Would look better in 28mm, the Perry brothers have a quite exquisite range...
