Lots to do. WR will be busy in the coming “years” cataloguing his collections..
Yes, LOTS of posts ahead – I look forward to them! As you know, I have been engaged in much the same thing since I started my blog, and I still have really only covered about half the collection .
This post lead me to review your awesome Rhinebund contingent. I just ordered the Perry figures to do the Wurzburg IR; perhaps Nassau and Frankfurt in the future!
I think this collection should take the field for one of your multi-player Napoleonic games, so that every one could say “Who ARE those guys?!” 🙂
Ok… CotR posted with maybe extra photos. But I think Westphalia comes first. Just noticed I didn’t even list Westphalia above (opps!, correction needed). Jerome will be pissed that his one miniature Garde du Korps squadron didn’t make the front page photo again.
The Rhine boys have seen action. Typically towards the rear except for the Nassau, Wurzburg and senior Frankfort battalions. The “who are they” rear dwellers favorites.. Orenburg, Hanseatic militia burgers, Mecklenburg is always confusing. I have screwed up their battalions (mixed miniatures) that they are continuously morale disordered.
Perry is great…Wish they were around 20 years ago when I painted my Rhineburgers. The modern gamers have it easy compared to the old days.
M aka WR
P.S. The real reason…. so my estate can figure out the collection some long day in the future. All miniature bases, and their storage boxes are labelled six ways to and from Sunday. Hope my sons thank me in the afterlife.
