15mm Saxony Army of 1812 Part 1

After a recent conversation with a friend in regards to Napoleonic rules, Laselle was recommended.

So 2016 is time I dusted of my 15mm Saxon Army and debased and tarted her up to be finally finished. I was first given a Saxon starter army around 28 years ago. By the late 1990's my VII Saxon corps of Napoleons Grande Armee of 1812 was almost completed. It then went into storage.

With the purchase of the pdf version of Laselle, I am going to undertake a re-basing and sprucing up of my Corps. SO today I dug out my Saxons to see what I was missing.

My army consists or should consists of the following units:

VII Corps under commander of General 'Reynier'

The bulk of my Cavalry
So that's my Napoleonic army, let the re-basing commence

Well that was it but then I found this information:
