    As stated on my blog these lads are very pretty but the question is, can they fight? I also asked the question – how many of you guys and girls out there have painted units, divisions etc which you knew would only rarely get into a historical re-fight and was it worth the effort?

    These figures are from the Outpost 15mm FPW, a full range of figures from this period.
    Do take a look on the blog http://thenorthumbrianwargamer.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/15mm%20Franco%20Prussian%20War
    if you are interested.

    We had a very large game on Saturday around 7 of us gaming this period of history, i love the Franco-Prussian war,over two weeks we gamed 3 battles in total with over 1500 figures in 28mm on the table all three were very close, much better period to game than naps and more interesting with rifle ranges and artillery, it really does push the Prussian to move and attack.

    Nice pics and blog.

    A bit more progress with the 1870 French Imperial Guard.

    No artillery yet, the rest of the Voltigures next.

    Great stuff and well painted they look a treat, at the moment i am building up the Schlesgwig Holstein war 1848-51, just created all the flags of every regiment the Danish had plus the Holstein and Prussian army, pretty please on how fast its coming along, 19th century is great for wargaming so many wars.

    The colours are a bit off on the photographs but you get the idea.

    Back in the mid-1970’s I painted the whole Napoleonic Prussian Guard of 12 infantry battalions, 4 cavalry regiments and 2 artillery batteries to go with my 2 Armeekorps using the now defunct MiniFigs 5mm blocks. In the intervening period they have been put on the table once but have never fired a shot in anger. Still have them.
