I figured I might as well show this off here as well. I'm working on a project for "Blucher" in 6mm and I've finished painting and basing my first brigade.

It represents Steindel's brigade of the Royal Saxon Army, assigned to VII Corps, 21st Division of Napoleon's Grande Armee for the il-fated invasion of Russia. Three more Saxon infantry brigades, a light cavalry brigade, and their heavy cavalry brigade will get me the rest of the Corps.

It's set up with the Prince Fredrick August Regiment (two battalions) leading in line with the Prince Clemens Regiment (two battalions) and the Von Liebenau Grenadier battalion in support in columns. Total strength was 3,509 men and officers at the start of the invasion of Russia, so a rather largeish brigade!
