100 Napoleonic Sets By 2015
On 8th April, a thread was started on Hat’s forum under the title “100 Napoleonic Sets for 2015”. It has generated a lot of discussion about the seriousness or otherwise of the original post, if it is ‘fair’ to have one period produced über alles, if it is possible to find 100 sets to produce, what the 100 sets should be, if anyone could buy 100 sets in a year and the like. No-one has yet bitten the bullet and made a list, so it is clearly our civil duty to do so!
Below are 100 Napoleonic sets. This list only includes sets that are currently not produced by any manufacturer and/or not available and/or not adequately covered. They have been listed by the nations in priority order according to the frequency of involvement in the Napoleonic Wars.
I was only half-way through the Russians when I reached 100, so the list does not include Prussians, British, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Danish, Ottomans, Americans or others. So, Napoleonic figures really are a near bottomless pit!
Which of your favourites (not currently available in 1/72nd) have I missed?!
