I have seen also the Prusssian and (not public) the British Army. How many figs do you own in total?

Very impressive Fordo!

I've stopped expanding my French army a long time ago, but this brings back a lot of good memories.

This makes my army (64, 81 including the 17 custom French Fusilier's I made) look puny compared to yours. I must well done!
I'm guessing you've been collecting for a long time?

I started collecting in 2006, and ironically it began with me and Bonaparte bidding for Red and Blue Napoleonic armies over at Classic-Castle, which didn't materialize.  And when Bonaparte posted his army over here at Eurobricks I joined to post my army as well.  Back then we also had Mosana making his stunning decals, wish he'd come back.

I was not aware you were also bidding on that army at CC. It's already some time ago, my memory is probably a bit faded. Who was winning the deal before it all got canceled by the seller?

I concluded my French army was big enough for any future diorama and/or MOCing needs.

However, I'm still collecting another army faction which is growing nicely. I'm not going to share any details at this point because I don't want to see certain figs go up in price on BL/eBay  :pir-tongue:

I had put in a full offer for the Blue army, while I believe you had offered for all three before he stopped responding.

Great army!  Are you still adding to it or has it reached its maximum size?

I plan to add more line Infantry as well as cavalry.  I also would like to build up my Prussian army in order to recreate part of the Jena-Auerstedt Campaign.

I'd like to have 40 more French line Infantry making the total 200 line Infantry, as well as a regiment of Hussars and possibly some Chevau-Légers (Lancers).  As for the Prussians, I'd like for them to at least equal my French army in size.

What I would someday LOVE to see is your army and Bonaparte's army both combined for a couple photos. Or for a LEGO show. That would be amazing being that together you two have over 577 men!
