Back in the late 70s and early 80s, some friends and I started into Napoleonics in 15mm. Almost the entire collection was 2nd gen Minifigs. Another buddy and I had the French while 3 of my other friends had English, Russian and Austrian. Some rather great times. we had playing Fire and Steel (aka System 7). I acquired most of the English and some of the Russians. I’ve since touched up/repainted most of the forces as my paint skills are considerably better than they were in 1978.
I’ve got WW2 both sides for Early N Africa and plenty of Micro Armor for Western Europe. Also lots of 15mm armies for fantasy, medieval, dark age and ancients back to the Punic wars. I have always painted both sides ever since my college days. These days, my friends are more into Dungeons and Dragons. I can get them to occasionally play a miniatures game.
