Spencer Smith Napoleonic Figures

I am now about two-thirds of the way through painting a collection of plastic Spencer Smith Napoleonic figures. From the remaining figures and a few ACW figure conversions (for artillery) I should be able to create 8 infantry units, 4 cavalry units and 6 artillery units. Then all should be just about done bar a few commanders and flag bearers.

Anyway I thought I would drag them all out for a few pictures and to help my motivation to complete the remaining units in the next two months.

The figures are painted in a simple (toy soldier) style representing Austrian/Russian and French armies from the Third Coalition 1805-1807.

  2. Absolutely splendid, you should be proud of them, it must be very satisfying to make such fine units out of old figures that some wargamers wouldn't touch.

    1. There is a definite additional pleasure in bringing back to life old miniatures.

    1. Always a surprise when you have been chipping away painting one or two units a week for a few months. The end is in sight!

    2. Figures and units can build up quickly and it is easy to lose track of how much has been accomplished. Is the end ever really in sight?

    3. For me the end is in sight - I run out of these particular figures. Unless I buy the metal miniatures still available from Spencer Smith Miniatures.

  5. A wonderful collection. Its a shame that there are no artillery figures, although I look forward to seeing the converted ACW figures. Great temptation to order some of these - although I am resisting at the moment!!

  6. The Spencer Smith range oddly lack good standard bearers, officers and artillery. I am going down the conversion path, rather than purchasing from other ranges, to keep to style of miniatures. (And it keeps the costs down.)
