Fear The Ham Eaters! Westfalia Will Rise Again!


The vaunted and much feared Westfalian Corps is beginning to take shape around the Red Oak Spa and Pool Club during the holiday season.
Westfalian Army Rations
The Corps is being constructed from Napoleon at War and New Line miniatures to be played with Napoleon at War rules.


Here is a brief review of Men at War French Westfalian "posers".  The figures themselves are not bad.  I was quite put off by the amount of flash on the figures however since they are expensive in comparison with other manufacturers' offerings.  Hopefully Men at War folks might take a look at the figures and re-do the molds. The figures were not miscast; just messy. It takes longer to clean them than it does to paint them.

I'm stuck with these guys since they're a sight larger than all 15mm and almost non-compatible with any other manufacturer. I have found that New Line Miniatures 20mm Napoleonics are the only figures that work with Men at War. Yeah, I'm whining but with the investment in this Corps nearly hitting the $300.00 mark (for unpainted stuff), I'm committed.

Clay and Kevin were right.  They WOULD look better
if I had taken more time to paint them.  

Are you shaking in fear yet?
