With 2015 winding down, I closed the lid and nailed the box shut on one of my 2015 goals. That goal was to complete 200 28mm Napoleonics during the year. I made it, but just. Painting log shows 157 foot, 41 horse, 8 artillerymen, and 2 guns completed in 2015. The project has now reached a count of slightly under 900 figures. What began as a notion for a small side project has exploded into a full-fledged project. How quietly the project has grown!Rolling off the painting desk is the second battalion of the French 4th Legere Regiment. These 18 figures (16 in close order and two as skirmishers) are Front Rank figures.
As I pulled the 1st battalion from the storage box, I rummaged through all of the other boxes in search of the skirmishers for the first battalion. None to be found. Since each light battalion should carry a complement of two skirmishers, two more legere skirmishers need to go into the painting queue. Those two AWOL skirmishers should muster out before year-end.Hopefully, 2016 will see this collection back in action on the Peninsula.
