I do not know about AI but surely you are looking at the future of wargaming through the following pics. And YES! they are a blow UP!… really small things 6MM… but size no longer an excuse… simply count as a BONUS.
6MM has been called God’s Own Scale (blasphemy not intended at all… people seem to be easily offended nowadays!)… and it is for the overall bird eye’s perspective and the sudden new dimensions of your table!
Big Navy, Small Army, Diplomacy and financial support… and many coalitions!
In the end it produced the ultimate Campaign of the Napoleonic Wars (why not the Old Monarchies Wars eludes me).
Thought I would give you some pics of a quite profesional Army that was nearly defeated at Waterloo… and rescued by the Prussians in the nick of time!… to do not mention the Allies (Dutch&Belgian, Brunswickers, Nassauers, Hannoverians, and KGL to just mention a few whom in general terms fought as hard as the Britons…).
I can understand you and all the rest, it was my obsession for thirty years!… that Corsican Emperor and his Regiments… MINIFIGS 25mm all the way (seee elsewhere in this Blog if you are really interested… Waterloo would do if you want to see the little soldiers I painted one by one painstakingly for years… (LOL)… and then sold away tired of that scale (too little to be 54mm… too big to wargame with… you need all sorts you know…).
At least I can remember the happy times when my brother and I tried (some time vainly and quite historically… to win at Waterloo) and one time succeeded in storming that bloody ridge! (knowing all the time that the Russians and the Austrians would not quit anyway…)… those were the days…
Well, in a way, those were some of my days… deeply involved in 6mm as readers of this webpage know already… but it is SOLO wargaming for me nowadays…
French Napoleonic figures are a joy to paint because the uniforms are gaudy … and the the plumed shakos are a must!… after a time you realize the changes in uniform in a span of 20 years… but who cares… even the design of the flags changed… look at a Carabinier (mounted) of the early times and of the Waterloo type… nothing in common… lol
A fantastic era for the painters!… so you pay your money and take your choice!
