Hi my name is Steve, I live in New Zealand although born in the UK of Irish descent.
My primary interests are in Napoleonic uniforms and Wargaming but I also love reading well-written unbiased Napoleonic history and especially enjoy auto-biograhies and memoirs. I have a large collection of 25/28mm figures and many books on the Napoleonic era.

I have always had a passion for painting accurate wargames uniforms for my wargames armies - my primary one being Suchet's army of Valencia - so I spent many years collecting information about different French Line and Light Infantry regiments. About 4 years ago I started collating all the information I had on Revolutionary/Republican/Napoleonic Line and Light Infantry uniforms where they were from identified regiments and started documenting them creating illustrations with the MS software package Paint. I have documented/illustrated several hundred different uniforms but haven't taken the time to count how many. I have used many different sources: books, photographs and websites, including some from a member here - Didier Davin - and many images posted from PINTEREST to this website. Which is how I heard about SEHRI in the first place, I am hoping to find additional information by being a member hear so I can continue to document the uniforms worn by specific regiments of line and light infantry. Attached is one of my illustrations.

Regards
Steve

Wellcome among us Steve

Would it be possible to have an overview of your wargame figures: French and Spanish?
I am also interested by the army of Suchet and would be please to exchange information.
Best regards from South of France
