Are any french infantry in Greatcoats?
It seems that the stylish Frenchman about Vimiero was wearing one in 1808.

Not at the moment, it'll be something that gets done with the new Napoleonic range.

What, a whole new Napoleonic range? Whoah!

Leon! When will it be ready, what will it cost, what will be the periods, the poses, the types of soldiers?

Heheh.  Grin

P.S. Yo 17-21l, you think we should keep this up until the very day the new range comes out?...  Tongue

Well, I've checked...  and there isn't any way to ban you two from Napoleonic specific discussions!   Tongue

We're starting with Wagram, so French and Austrian's, then onto the British after that.

Greetings

Presumably/hopefully if you're starting with Wagram it'll also include some Bavarians, Wurttembergers etc ...?  Smiley

I'll have to re-read vols I-II and start reading vol III of Gill's Thunder on the Danube.

I think the ones I've got on the list are Bavarians, Saxons, Baden, and Hesse-Darmstade troops?  I'll have to check though, because we've been checking into uniform differences between them to see if they require different sculpts.

Greetings

I should know this but think that the Wurttembergers were detached before Wagram - they were certainly present and active earlier in the campaign e.g. Ebensburg.  Doing the 1809 campaign as opposed to battle makes sense as while a lot of people might hesitate to refight Wagram the smaller battles are idea.

Exactly my sentiment, Edward. Similarly, in the 1806 Prussian campaign the smaller engagements are very interesting and Saalfeld, Schleiz, etcetera are much more 'playable' than Jena and Auerst├Ądt.
