Let me assure you I wasnt in the least offended. I was just explaining that if you thought theres any plan behind the scenario there wasn't.
I am in admiration of those of you that have the knowledge to consider whether a coat was worn on the day. However I'm sure the lads would be pleased to have those coats in Russia.
This is a friendly website (in the main) and I'm more amused by the sometimes heated arguments than otherwise. I wouldn't have a problem with asking for advice on this site, whereas on others I would have a certain hesitancy. The thing is for those of us that are not from a wargaming background this is quite a solitary hobby and I am pleased to view and have viewed the contributions and subsequent comments.
So thank you.
Dont worry Paul, no controversy here. Just a general discussion about if the French really did wear soaking wet, heavy greatcoats at Waterloo, so in no way aimed at your excellent painted figures.
I too have some guard infantry in greatcoats, some line battalions too.
I like the look of greatcoated French mixed together with the regular uniformed troops, gives an impression of how quickly they were mobilised and obviously the change from it being an imperial army to royal, only to go back to imperial again.
