beautifully customed armies, Cooster! and lots of rare old klickies!
ENVY ENVY ENVY!  ;D

i notice that you used some of those blue lacey collars/lapels(?)... to represent any particular unit? (i dont have any of these collars...can they be snapped on without removing their heads first? are they from the old musketeer specials?

thanks for sharing...(do you have more napoleonics or more ACW klickies?)

Hello Cheng,


the blue collars are used for the French artillerists. To withdraw them without breaking them, the characters should be dismounted (limps 4258)

I have 1400 ACW Klikies and 150 Napoléonics (100 % french soldier)
Kaisergarde have 1500 Napoléonics (50/50)

for a moment i was afraid Cooster had lost interest of ACW  :P
still, your 150 french are impressive customs
and i think you should be preparing an equal strength of Redcoats  ;D
(like you , i started with ACW and then moved to napoleonics but i dont have that many without buying those discontinued klickies from eBay etc)

do share/show us more!  :D

I have noticed that those who are doing the Napoleonic battles have a one-handed drum to keep time for their troops.  Are these available?  Does any one have a stock number?
