I think I've explained the Naps ranges somewhere already, but the current ranges/sculpting plans are due to a large customer buying 20,000-30,000 figures at a time.  We're currently working on his British order covering all the Brits, Brunswickers, Hanoverians, D-B's and KGL, so the sculpting plans have followed his requirements.

I should have the final few 'gaps' done, and in the post to you, by the end of the week, Leon.

Cheers - Phil

Bloody hell. He doing the whole 100 Days/Waterloo at one to one scale?!

I'm actually sure I have too many figures and I'm not convinced I have even ONE of those orders worth Cheesy

Not long, he's already painted most of the Prussians we dropped off in February last year!

This was the Borodino game he did last year: http://gerryjelliottsituation.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/, this year it's Dresden.

That's both impressive and somewhat mad!

I thought as a group we had a lot of figures, but clearly we don't.

Well that sort of purchasing power is hard to argue against  Sad

I'm not sure what is scarier, the fact he's buying that quantity or the painting turnaround!

What you really need to do Leon, is convince him that his next epic period is 1809  Cheesy

I've tried!  He's working through a rather long campaign finishing with Waterloo I assume, so I don't know if he's got any plans to go back to the earlier period once they're done.

Ah well, kudos to him I guess.

Maybe we should run a poll to decide what his next campaign should be  Wink

Sadly a rough calculation for Wurttemberg, Saxony, Hesse and Baden combined only comes to about 4000 figures, I would commit to that but it doesn't really compete with 20,000  Sad

That's not a bad start though, if we can find some more people who want them we might be able to sort something out and bump them up the requests lists?
