I've finally given in and realised that my limited painting time and gaming space just aren't compatible with 28mm for recreating Napoleon's 1814 campaign. The reasons for this are explained on my Napoleonic blog (La Patrie en Danger) along with my initial plans for this project.
After a trip down to Castle Donnington at the weekend I now have a couple of packs of 6mm Russian Infantry in greatcoats from Baccus. I'll get these painted over the next week or so and post some pictures along with my initial reactions to this size of figure.
I have to say that I am amazed at how much detail these little chaps have on them and I'm looking forward to painting them.
