Still, the figures are quite serviceable despite their scrawny build and occasional ugly mug and, hopefully, fight like a tiger on the tabletop. Having their own charm, an entire army of these figures would look good. On the gaming table, they will look fine among the other manufacturers' figures.Next off the painting desk will be a unit of Sash & Saber French line masquerading as Swiss.

British 30th Foot - Old Glory 2
Continuing on with my self-imposed Nothing But Napoleonics February, off the painting desk marches an 18 figure battalion of British infantry. These figures are my first eye-witness sampling of Old Glory's Second Edition 28mm Napoleonics. Compared against Front Rank or Brigade Games' 28s, these guys are slender, pencil-waisted leadmen. Really! With no hips and skinny legs, how could they keep their trouser hoisted up? I suppose figures represent a unit after several seasons of hard campaigning and deprivation. A shadow they will not cast!
