Re: Napoleonic 95th Rifles (Perry 28mm)

Sergio, glad I could be of a little help! And I agree, the fact that many of the KGL battalions actually wore green and were fighting in close proximity seems to confuse some historians! The likeness of uniforms has something positive as well. I was having problems finding pictures of some of the sm...

Re: Napoleonic 95th Rifles (Perry 28mm)

I seem to remember reading somewhere, that they wore green trousers during the 100 days. But I can not remember where. I thought it was Franklin, but he only has info regarding the officers pantaloons. So I am not sure, might have been Adkins book. Bottom line is, I painted them green, with the exce...

Re: Napoleonic 95th Rifles (Perry 28mm)

THX Dave!

Believe it or not... Creating these vignettes was not so easy. Discounting the command minis I was working with only 7 different minis and it was hard to get them arranged in a way that the scenes made sense and yet did not repeat themselves.

Re: Some WWII British (28mm)

Thank you, David! For me it is all 28mm, never could stand anything smaller. Plus you only need on set of terrain that way. Walchern is very interesting to me as well. Most people ignore it as a side show to Market Garden, but I think it is one of the most interesting campaigns of the war. If you li...
