Voila les francais!

And here are the French units now deployed on my tiny little table. I used my camera phone to snap these, and I'm not happy with the photo quality. Once again, clicking to enlarge should make things a little better.

Here is the entire French army. Some Bavarians try to secure the French left, leaving the main part of the army to concentrate on punching through the center.

French Brigade columns prepare to smash into Austrian lines, with cuirassiers ready to exploit the gap. If I were the Austrians, I would be very very scared.

The thin blue line defends a village from the Austrian horde. The houses are 6mm buildings from JR miniatures mounted on an old CD. I think the smaller scale looks appropriate, given the scale of the battle.

And here is the whole battlefield, packed tightly with tin. I love the look, but this is way to many troops for anything but a set piece battle. For my test engagement, I'll halve the number of troops on each side.
