I have been wargaming for many years and my work is within the wargames world, as a terrain maker.
This often leaves me little or no time for relaxation or should I say painting miniatures and reading Napoleonic history books. Something I needed to address, as I wanted to relight my passion for the era of the Napoleonic wars.
Having come full circle in my wargaming journey so far having started with 15mm scale figures in the Late 70's, moved onto larger figures during the late eighties and early nineties and into the new millennium too. Then I decided to give it all up, and concentrate on building my business up from the hobby to one that could support me and my growing family.
Then last year I got hooked on the excellent rules by Sam Mustafa called Lasalle. Having sold all my toy soldiers in the last few years to fund getting my own business of the ground,I decided it was high time I rebuilt some nice Napoleonic armies and started playing some relaxed games with toy soldiers and this gave me the perfect reason to find that lost time.
I started with the Saxon army as this was a nation that I had always wanted to paint but never owned. I set an objective to have the core army and one support option completed by May 2011.I have almost completed the first phase of this army based loosley on the VII corp of the Grand Armee in 1812.

I shall post further pictures to show the various elements built up so far in more detail over the coming week.
