    @torros the War of the Third Coalition. I’ve always been interested in doing a proper Austrian force since they were the first Napoleonic minis I ever picked up back in 2012 in 20mm.

     

    The Goal will be Austerlitz but I’ll work up to it by setting some smaller goals. With all white uniforms I should be able to paint them pretty quickly.

    Just tackling the Austrians, or planning on the allied Russians and an opposing French force too?

    I’ll start with the Austrians but I do plan to do all three armies.

    @elessar2590

    Have you chosen your rules yet?

    @torros I’m going to go with Blucher, it looks good and it lets me build those big 75mm Square bases so I can pack lots of minis on them. If anyone has actually played the game I would love to hear some stuff about it.

    The Project is live but I’ll order the minis next week so it’s just filler.

    Looking at cost (didn’t know 6mm were going to cost a fortune where you live, but then again Eureka are fleecing me for AB minis (so it works the other way too)). I wonder if these MDF 6mm might be worth a looksee

    I’ve used Irregular in the past, and they are ok”ish”. Problem for me has been in the past a lot of variance with the casts themselves (old molds pushed too far beyond their serviceable life perhaps). Some have been fine while others suffered from either bad slippage (all too easy to do with 6mm) or just plain rough casts making it hard to work out what is what on the figure.

     

    Now imagine if Wofun could pantograph down their Naps range (or even better Naps with Mr Dennis’s artwork) down to 6mm/10mm. Now suddenly there would be something fantastic (and a lot lighter than metal minis).

    Its the cost of the postage not the figures that gets you

     

    Getting Irregular in Australia isn’t too bad as Eureka have there own moulds for them and seem to remake the moulds more regularly than Irregular in the UK do

    Yeah postage is nothing from Baccus it’s the months of waiting that is my obstacle.

    I’ll be moving soon and probably again after that so that’s not viable.

    Irregular here in Australia are really nice sculpts and the smaller, less defined sculpts look nicer to me but that’s preference.

    @torros no just going back home and then hopefully getting accepted to study and moving on Campus. All in QLD but then again if I was in Europe I’d probably be moving the equivalent of three small countries distance away.
