April-March Painting

Painting wise I finished my second battalion of Napoleonic French Infantry. So now I have a nice small force. One thing that hit me is that absent a game store, I will not have the space for a large formation. I have decided to thus paint only one more battalion for my French. I must say I fear the some of the people who chide players on the TMP for playing with small 28mm armies, must really be oblivious of the space issues. If in line my two battalions would easily take up 2/3rds of the space of my 48 by 46 tables, and I am not sure they would not be huge even for my local games stores tables. This has validated to me the decision to only do 28mm at most at the Brigade level, since that gives a good feel for me and could be played on my smaller portable tables.
