A few (bad) photos of my Napoleonic figures. I came across a great set of old school rules called 'Muskets & Marshals' which upon reading took me right back to my teenage years when I took Art in some epic games at Stoke Wargames Group. The rules call for 2...

Snappy Nappies Units.
The good thing about SN is the fact that you don't need thousands of figures to play 'big' games.  Small numbers of figures represent large bodies of troops. My infantry are based two figures to a base but these will be blocked together to form 2 x 4 figure...

'Down-scaled' Buildings & Snappy Naps
Over the past day or so I've found myself giving yet more thought to my Napoleonic collection and thought it about time that I get back back to my Snappy Nap project. I've always liked the grand tactical Napoleonic game and Snappy Nappies grabbed my attenti...
