I had an idea to create Napoleonic battalions of a small scale (10mm) as 3D boxes rather than 2D cutouts and here are the results to date.
British in line, column and square
Card flags inserted into slots on the top
Font and side illustrations
The French in line, column and square
The French advance in line (it did happen!)
The French advance in column (thats more like it)
Once there are a few on the table they look quite convincing (I'm biased obviously). Below is an enlargement of the individual troop illustrations. I can appreciate that some purists will find errors in uniform and kit but they were never meant to be seen at this size.
Finally I have included a sample of the British in line:
and the French in column for people to try:
