Holiday Update Part VIII

Hoi,

Just a picture update of some nice new Napoleonics. This time I present you with the 33rd Regiment of Foot in firing line. The figures are mostly Revell with some ACTA mixed in for good measure. The Ensigns are conversions since we are still awaiting a new British command set, like HäT's, coming out.




Also I'd like to mention I obtained two very nice books today. First off is the new Black Powder supplement "The Last Argument of  Kings". http://www.warlordgames.co.uk/12349/new-black-powder-the-last-argument-of-kings/ I haven't had time to read it in it's entirety but just the pictures are worth it by themselves.
The second book I bought is Hourtoulle's "Jena and Auerstad" http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jena-Auerstaedt-Triumph-Francois-Guy-Hourtoulle/dp/2915239762/ref=pd_sim_b_1 and it's great as well. I'm not planning to do any of the two battles soon but am doing the Prussian and Saxon armies featured in this tome so the uniform plates come in mighty handy.

Cheers Sander

Those Ensigns are great!

The lack of a decent British command set (Pennisnsular or Waterloo era) is very annoying-fortunately there are some metal figures that match available.
