I thought it would be a good idea to post a few more photos of our current game, which for want of a proper name I'm referring to as Eric's Battle. The game continued up to turn 16 last night and various reinforcements have arrived on both sides. The French received an allied corps made up of Wurtemburg and Westphalians and the Allies recieved an Austrian Grenadier division and a Cuirassier division. This first shot shows the grenadiers as they push through the lines of their Russian allies in order to assault a French held village.
Old Glory Swiss painted by Dom which form part of the French attack on the Allied right flank.

One battalion square has already been cut down and the others are understandably nervous.
Calpe Prussian Landwehr painted by Neil Sheardown. These lads only arrived a short while ago and will eventually be joined by another two battalions. Neil's going to be painting some of the new Calpe Saxons which I may have mentioned before and I'm really looking forward to seeing them. Hopefully Calpe will be producing Saxon cavalry in time.
Finally a head on shot of the grenadier division. These are a mix of battalions from Elite and Front Rank. As you can see the Elite ones are still waiting to recieve their standards but were rushed into action anyway.
