Peninsula Campaigning

Well David Crook asked, so I should probably scope out some plans.  Here goes with my wish list for 28mm Peninsula campaigning.


  1. 4-6 battalions of Ligne 24 strong (Victrix, Perry's in greatcoats)
  2. 2 battalions of Ligne 24 strong (Perry's without greatcoats paint conversions or Hat)
  3. 1-2 battalions of Poles (Perry's without greatcoats straight up)
  4. 1-2 battalions of foreigners like Swiss  (Victrix)or Hessians (Perry's)
  5. 1-2 battalions of young guard (Perry's)
  6.  2 regiments of 12 light cavalry (Perry Hussars, no Chasseurs available in plastic)
  7. regiments of 12 Dragoons (Perry's converted to earlier uniform)
  8. regiments of 12 Cuirassier (Perry's)
  9. 2 units of 12 detached voltigeurs (Victrix, Perry's, Hat or all of the above)
  10. 1 unit of 12-dismounted dragoons (Perry's converted)
  11. 2-4 guns with foot artillery crews (metals)
  12. 2 guns with horse artillery crews (metals)

British and Allied

  1. 4-6 battalions of British or KGL Foot 24 strong (Perry's or Victrix)
  2. 1-2 battalions of Highlanders (Victrix)
  3. 1-2 battalions of light infantry  (Victrix flank companies)
  4. 2-3 battalions of Portuguese (Perry's or Victrix paint conversions)
  5.  2 regiments of 12 light cavalry (Perry Hussars, metals for lt dragoons)
  6. regiments of 12 Dragoons (metals or Perrys French Dragoons heavily converted)
  7. 2 units of 12 flankers (Victrix, Perry's, or both)

  1. Hi Peter,

    Phew! You will be a busy chap and no mistake! I note that the Perry plastic British Hussars are due out fairly soon which may or may not throw a spanner in the works!

    All the best,


  2. David

    Yes, the Perry plastic hussars are part of the master plan - likely a 5 year plan! I did say that this was a wish list.


  3. Peter,

    Ambitious plan, I really look forward to seeing it take shape. The first painted troops look very nice.

    Thanks. I'm loving your home casts 40s by the way - almost having me rethink but molten metal and I don't sound like a good mix!
