Re: What was never done before for napoleonic period?british infantry in square formation and French

Yes they did it is nice set but many soldiers are engaged in quarrel but not good enough for making basic square not good enough.

Re: What was never done before for napoleonic period?british infantry in square formation and French

No mention has been made of Naval operatives.

Yes there was the HaT set with a few marines but it was over spread with gunners and sailors (no officers or petty officers). Amphibious operations were a specialty of the Royal Navy during this period.

This would be also of use for the American phase of the War of 1812 (post Invasion of Canada) as
amphibious were quite common. Imagine being able to model your own 'burning of the presidential palace in Washington'.

Like their land counterparts their uniforms changed during this period. Taking it a step further, you could also have American Marines ( green uniforms) to reenact Bernard Cornwell's 'the Fort'

However, you would need more Scots (without kilts this time) and that might upset those out there who object to Scots figures.

Forgot to mention with the American marines the 'extra figure' could be an English bull dog.

Highlanders (as opposed to Scots) in trews and Hummel bonnets would make a refreshing change, and would certainly add to the range.

What was never done before for napoleonic period? The carriage for Napoleon...

I still want to se Napoleon's carriage. Been waiting since 1977 when I got the Airfix Battle of Waterloo.

But Still, this carriage is missing...

Pavol, your request for the helmeted gendarmes d'élite has been answered, from a different quarter.

Not plastic, but 1/72nd scale and always beautiful figures!
