As the photos below show, these are not dregs of his collection by any measure. These are all nicely painted figures. I do have a couple of conversions to do and a couple of standards to add to the units, but that is a matter of one weekend and they will be ready to go!
You can see that I have already gotten the majority of them on stands and ready for flocking. Only a couple of battalions (five) more to base up and they will be ready to add to the force. I even have some figures that will be Young/Middle Guard battalions.
Here are some initial photos:
The Commanders First.

Here are the infantry.
|All of the new battalions. In front (l to r) two 2-battalion ligne regiments, one 3-battalion ligne regiment and one 1-battalion legere regiment. In the second line are two 2-battalion Polish line regiments. I haven't numbered any of the units yet.|
|Two battalion ligne regiment.|
|Close-up of the Eagle of one of the ligne regiments.|
|Three battalion ligne regiment. Still need to add the Eagle to the command stand.|
|One of the Polish Line regiments of two battalions. Note the Sapper in the left hand command stand.|

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this great gift from Ed! He will not be paying for lunch anytime soon when I am around!
