          I love this one Warpaint. Looking at it, you get the feeling to be one of the unfortunate Spanish gunners about to be cut down.

                I have the book Napoleon's Elite Cavalry: Cavalry of the Imperial Guard, 1804-1815. from which those plates are taken from, on my shelf. It was worth every penny of £30 that I paid for it back in 1999. 'I just hope that some day others in the same format are released'. "Fantastic"

                All human ills he can subdue,
                Or with a bauble or medal
                Can win mans heart for you;
                And many a blessing know to stew
                To make a megloamaniac bright;
                Give honour to the dainty Corse,

                    The French uniforms were expensive.

                    Infantryman's outfit cost 200-250 francs.
                    Line grenadier uniform cost 300 francs.
                    Light cavalryman's uniform cost 500 francs.
                    Guard chasseur a cheval uniform cost 950.
                    Cuirassier's uniform ( including the cuirass ) cost approx. 2.000 francs!

                          I think... I don't know. There was a website with this kind of information, but I can't remember it right off. Sorry Duke.

                          • Firstly, let me thank ewpeyia for posting such great plates. Now can anyone tell me if is possible to save them as single plates and if so how do you do it?
                            Best regards

                                I copied them by using the 'Print Screen' button on the keyboard, then pasting into 'Windows Paint and then saving them. I cleaned them up using a photo editing programme.

                                See attached image.

                                I hope this is of help.
