After I come back from Virginia after two week's hopefully I'll get a new camera with better quality, then take better pictures and close-ups.

There are 80 troops in that bucket waiting to be armed along with 13 more in a current order.

You made us wait a long time for these Mr. Fordo.
But it was worth the waiting.
You have an incredible army. Your Mameluk cavalry is fantastic.
That's something I don't have yet, but seeing yours, I'm gonna go to Bricklink right after writing this post.

I'm also looking forward to some better pics. If you make these with real daylight (in the garden) the quality will already be much better.

Excellent army - and very nice to see some of my bodies appearing! Will we be seeing any of your other Napoleonic armies?

I plan on posting the rest of the my French army using the British one in the future.  Don't worry my dog isnt to big but he'd sure do damage to my army if he wanted.  :-D

Approximately how many mini-figures would you have if you combined both armies?

For the french I have 80 armed infantry and 20 armed calvary, and I have 120 unarmed Infantry.

For the British I have 80 armed Infantry and 10 armed Calvary, and have 30 unarmed.

For the Prussians I have 80 unarmed Infantry.

So together 160 armed Infantry and 30 armed Calvary, with 230 unarmed Infantry, so if all were armed I'd have 420 troops all together.

What's the total amount of shako's you have a present day?
Just curious  ;-)

Oh and I have another question.
What flags or standards did you use for your cavalry? It's hard to tell from the pics.
I would assume the different cavalry units (hussars, cuirrasiers, mamelukes, ...) had different flags.
I'm looking for some to download and print since I'm working on my French cavalry.

I have 220 Shako's at the moment mostly on my French troops.  For my Calvary I decided to change it up and use the first flag to the left on the bottem. I have preliminary pictures of my Prussian army here, http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=260000 right now I have them all with brown epaulettes and heads just need 60 more Shako's and muskets (have 20 with Shakos already).
