Looks great!

Are those Elite and Eureka Miniatures? Or are there others too?

Thanks Gunter,
This collection is years old from before Eureka started bringing out their range (though I do have a 24 figure Rgt of their Austrian cavalry to paint up).
The collection is mainly Old Glory's 1805 range as the differences in uniform were minimal and there was nothing else out there at the time of purchase. Other figures come from Trent miniatures Elite and Front rank.
Have a look on the blog:

There's loads of pictures and info under the '28mm French Revolution' heading at the top of the page.
Thanks again,
Dave.

very nice pics! you've got to love those French revolutionary flags.
I've always been interested in the period, especially Napoleon in Italy and the Eureka figures are certainly very tempting but fortunately their price has meant that it is a period for the future, plus a certain Mr Hilton keeps putting other tempations in my way :roll:
Cheers
Dave

Dave,
Eureka have great figures and I agree (as I've stated here in the past) with all that you say, however as you can see from the photo's none of the troops on show are Eureka. Provided you aren't too picky about the finite details the other manufacturers cover most of what you will need.
On show are Old Glory, Elite, Trent and Front Rank.
