Napoleonic Prussian Line Infantry and Jagers in plastic waiting to be based and and flaged. The perry figures produce a very nice solid battalion and each set (British, French and Prussian) comes with associated skirmishers. All are now available on the website.

Occasionally we get a request for some 15mm figures. These are Napoleonic French Guard based by the customer. These are part of an ongoing project and I think look pretty effective. A number of figure suppliers are now doing some very nice 15mm figures. Its a nice scale for quickly building up those armies while still retaining some of the detail that you may loose in smaller scales.

The Irlanda were raised from Jacobites who travelled from Ireland to Spain after the Williamite Wars in the late 17th century.At the time of the Napoleonic Wars there were still three Irish infantry regiments in the Spanish army: Irlanda (raised 1698); Hibernia (1709); and Ultonia (1709) formed the Irish Brigade. The Irlanda fought at the Battle of Albuera. However in the later years of the existence of these units only the officers were Irish or of Irish descent, the men being predominantly Spanish or other foreigners. All three regiments were finally disbanded in 1815.
