  2. I am looking forward to our next Peninsula game in May.

    I'll be adding two more sections of RHA 6-pounders to my force and either start on the 94th Regiment of Foot or those Vistula Lancers that have been beguiling me for several years now.

  5. 12 man company of Elite Miniatures Portuegese Cacadores. Painted as an Elite company with rifles based on 3/4" washers. Thought they would match up with Jim's British Rifles.
