15mm AB Napoleonic Hungarian Infantry

Tired of painting various shades of Confederate gray, I turned to some AB Napoleonics that I already had primed, these 36 Hungarian line infantry. The AB figures paint up very well, of course. This is IR31, with dark yellow facings and silver buttons. The flag is GMB.

Below you'll see how these AB figures compare to another line sculpted by Anthony Barton, Battle Honors. In the US, you can get AB figures for $.70 each, or you can buy a bag of 50 Battle Honors figures for $17. If you buy enough Battle Honors, though, you can get a 40% discount, meaning that these figures will ring in at only $.20 each.

While the ABs are clearly better sculpts, the difference is not that great. I do like that with AB figures I can specify the exact number of each pose I want, so I don't end up with a bunch of extra figures I'll never use.


  1. Scott,

    What rules are these miniatures based for?

  2. We play "Age of Eagles," but it's a pretty common basing scheme. Napoleon's Battles and General de Brigade use the same, and it can be used for Le Feu Sacre.
