I bought Strelet's new Egyptian Campaign British Line set with the vague thought of using as Royal Marines (even though I've got HaT's Marines and sailors set!), but now I feel like buying all the other sets in this range including British Light, French Line and Light as well as Mameluke cavalry to build up both sides of the 1800 British invasion of Egypt. Strelets also have British and French artillery in the pipeline.
I've been reading Macksey's history of the campaign with all the familiar names of the future Peninsular War getting an early taste of battling the French. Review to follow once I finish it, but in the meantime, here's the first British Line figure from the set. They're on the chunky side, but not much different from the HaT French figures I have. I quite like them!
I am still moving steadily along with the dragoons and the Spaniards and will carry on with Jim's Soviets, too, so I don't know when this project will be completed.
